Program Admissions

Any current, former or graduated student from a regionally accredited college or university can apply for admission into the Clinical Laboratory Science Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree program at Indiana University School of Medicine. Students not currently enrolled at IUPUI must apply for enrollment at IUPUI before submitting the Health Professions Program application.

Students apply to the Clinical Laboratory Science program during the fall semester for enrollment with the cohort starting the next fall semester. Most students submit their application during their third or fourth years of postsecondary coursework. Students who have already completed a bachelor’s degree may also apply.

Students accepted into the Clinical Laboratory Science program must complete all of the program’s admission requirements before classes begin. Admission into IUPUI does not guarantee enrollment into the Clinical Laboratory Science program.

Apply

Undergraduate students at Indiana University interested in pursuing a Bachelor degree in Clinical Laboratory Science are encouraged to apply. A limited number of scholarships is available for accepted students.
