THE NEXT-STEP PROGRAM The major goal of the Next-Step Program is to provide Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) graduates the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree at Gannon. The curriculum meets the academic requirements for a bachelor’s degree, includes courses required by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS), and prepares students for graduate studies. The Next-Step Program provides for a blanket transfer of 32 credits from a Medical Laboratory Technician program, 33 other credits to be evaluated for transfer (or a total of 65 transfer credits), and 83 credits earned from Gannon (including 32 credits from a NAACLS accredited hospital program). The program requires 148 credits to complete.
