Online Program

Online Clinical Laboratory Technology at SUNY Broome Community College is a two-year, fully-accredited, clinically-based curriculum leading to the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree. Students complete their studies on a part-time basis (less than 12 credit hours per semester). There is no fast-track option for the online program. Graduates of the program are automatically eligible to sit for New York State Licensure and national certification examinations. In lieu of campus-based student laboratories, Online CLT students complete a set of preclinical competencies at an affiliated hospital within their geographical area. At the end of their studies, students will also complete clinical training (400 hours) in hospital laboratories affiliated with the program to provide hands-on experience as well as excellent training for immediate employment. While this is a two-year, four-semester program, the program may require more than two years to complete, depending on a student’s academic background. The department will tailor a program assuring each student the opportunity to earn the A.A.S. degree in Clinical Laboratory Technology.

At this point, the preclinical and clinical rotations can only be completed at an accredited hospital found in New York State.  Due to accreditation requirements, the rotations must be completed during first shift only on Monday-Friday, not on weekends or evenings. The online program is only available to students who live outside the immediate geographical area of the college.    

 Below is a list of our current affiliates for online students.  Not all facilities are available for all rotations and student placement at a particular facility is not a guarantee.
