First degree students and returning students seeking entry into the Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) program will do so through the Traditional Track. Students are encouraged to enroll at IUSB under the pre-CLS degree designation . Students will meet with advising to determine required pre-requisite courses and develop a plan for course completion. Upon completion of all pre-requisite courses, either through IUSB or as part of a previously attained degree, students may apply for acceptance into the professional phase of the CLS program. At this time, typically during the second (sophomore) or third (junior) academic year, students will officially apply to be accepted in the clinical track. Successful applicants will be recoded into the Clinical Laboratory Science BS (CLSBS) program and follow a 3 semester cohort model to degree completion.
