The Medical Laboratory Technology Program is a cooperative program in conjunction with Mercer County Community College designed to prepare students for successful careers as Medical Laboratory Technicians (MLTs). The program is offered in two (2) phases. The pre-professional phase, first year of study, includes courses in general education, mathematics, and sciences offered here at Atlantic Cape. The second phase or the Professional Phase, which includes the clinical experiences, is conducted in a streamlined hybrid format at Mercer County Community College and laboratories located in the Mercer, Atlantic, and Cape May county areas. Upon completion of the pre-requisite courses here at Atlantic Cape, students apply to Mercer County Community College for admittance to the professional phase of the program. The professional phase requires a separate application and criminal/sex offender background checks, urine drug screening, and specific health requirements.

Please see the Medical Laboratory Technology Program degree page in this catalog for more information on the pre-professional phase of the program and contact information. More information about the Professional Phase of the program can be found at
