Note: Students should observe the "See course description" footnotes that appear throughout the following programs. Many courses in these programs have prerequisites or are offered only during certain semesters or at certain times. This program provides the student with their basic education and prepare them to transfer to a four-year college. To be considered for admissions to the medical technology program at the University of Kansas Medical Center, students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.00 and a grade-point average of2.30 in chemistry, biology, and microbiology

Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
