When is the deadline to apply?
The medical laboratory science master's program operates on a rolling admissions basis.
The application will open in October 2021 with a deadline of May 1, 2022. Applications
will be reviewed immediately and applicants will be notified by May 30, 2022 if selected
for an interview. Interviews will be conducted in mid-June, and selected cohort candidates

Where do I send my college transcripts?
Note that official college transcripts from all colleges/universities schools attended
must be sent directly to:
Office of Admissions
625 Old Peachtree Road NW
Suwanee, GA 30024
We will accept electronic transcripts via mail, eScript and/or Parchment Services
and National Student Clearinghouse.
What are the next steps?
Once your application has been received, you will be contacted via email with a confirmation
within seven (7) business days of its receipt including reminders of the appropriate
steps to complete the application process. At this point, it is expected that applicants
send or order all final transcripts from all universities/colleges attended.
As an applicant to the MS in Medical Laboratory Science program, you are responsible
for ensuring that all admissions materials are completed accurately and submitted
in a timely manner.
Does the committee require an interview?
Interviews are conducted for admission into the Medical Laboratory Science program.
These will be conducted in mid-June, and notifications with details of date/time/location
will be included in the notification sent by May 30, 2022.
Are there minimum GPA and standardized test scores to apply?
The program director, faculty and the Office of Admissions conducts a holistic review
of all completed and verified applications. There is a minimum grade point average
of 3.0 for all upper-level science courses assessed during the application and transcript
review process. Following the completion of the review process, each applicant is
notified of an admissions decision by the Faculty Committee in writing, including
any conditions that must be satisfied prior to or following enrollment.
The committee will accept candidates by July 1, 2022, for the allotted 15 seats in
the program. Once the cohort is determined, applicants must accept and commit to the
program by July 15, 2022. Up to five alternate candidates may be selected if a finalist
does not accept his/her appointment to the program. Applicants not selected for the
MS in Medical Laboratory Sciences program will be sent a final decision via email
by August 1, 2022.
