The Phlebotomy Technician Program is offered during the fall and spring semesters. Enrollment in phlebotomy (PBT) courses is limited in order to provide the best possible educational experience for students. Previous or concurrent enrollment in COM 125 and HIT 105, and program assessment testing in reading are required for enrollment in PBT courses.

Contact Learning Assessment and Testing Services for details. Acceptance into the program is based on assessment results with documentation of reading skills at a 10th-grade level.

For continuation in the Phlebotomy Technician program, a 2.0 or better GPA must be received in each of the major courses.

Current American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers, completed health form, documented immunizations, and 2-step tuberculosis (TB) test are required two weeks prior to the start of PBT 297 - Phlebotomy Externship.
