Certification of Graduates

Graduates are eligible to take a national certification examination through American Society for Clinical Pathology and American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science’s Board of Certification. Granting of the degree is not contingent upon passing an external certification or licensure examination.

The mission of the Clinical Laboratory Science and Histotechnology programs within the Medical Laboratory Science Division at West Virginia University is to provide a high-quality education leading to a Bachelor of Science degree that prepares graduates for their roles as members of the healthcare team in an environment of rapidly changing technology.
