National Certification Examinations

As a Medical Technology student at Marist, you can expect an organized and well-developed plan that is designed to help you pass your National Certification and New York State licensing exam administered by the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science. Licensure as a Medical Technologist in other states is dependent on many factors including, but not limited to, educational requirements, examination requirements, and personal requirements. As a result, Marist College cannot determine whether completion of this program would be sufficient to meet all the licensure or limited permit requirements outside of New York State for the Medical Technology occupation. We advise you to contact the state licensing board or appropriate licensing entity to determine whether the program meets requirements for professional licensure in the state in which you reside or intend to pursue licensure.
