The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Medical Laboratory Technology is designed to prepare qualified technicians to perform a variety of complex laboratory tests which play an important role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of many diseases and in the promotion of health. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take national examinations to become certified Medical Laboratory Technicians.
As a certified MLT, employment is available in hospitals and clinics as well as veterinary, industrial and environmental laboratories in Colorado or in other states.
The MLT Program is delivered in an online/hybrid format and is available in a 1-year fast track option and 2-year traditional route. More than two years may be taken to complete the program. Students may begin general education classes at any time, according to published semester schedules. All MLT didactic courses are offered in a hybrid format.

The MLT AAS degree can be utilized as a career ladder for continued education. The ACC MLT program has an agreement with Metropolitan State University of Denver for transfer of specific courses into the Biology Department toward a Bachelor’s degree with an emphasis in Medical Laboratory Science in association with the Colorado Center for Medical Laboratory Science.
