Notes:
Earned grade of C or better in each courses is required for admission to the Clinical Lab Science major. Students taking core curriculum will be designated a Pre- Clinical Lab Science Student. Augusta University students will apply for acceptance into the Clinical Lab Science major when core curriculum is still in progress. All core must be complete before beginning the Clinical Lab Science program.

Transfer Students:
If a student has complete Pre- Clinical Lab Science or Clinical Lab Science core areas from another school in the University System of Georgia, then Augusta University will accept the areas as satisfied. A student who plans to transfer from a school not in the University System of Georgia should complete the courses that are equivalent to the Augusta University core.
Upper division Clinical Lab Science courses from another Clinical Lab Science program cannot be transferred into the Bachelor of Science in Clinical Lab Science Program.
