Special Considerations:

  1. The UWSP required course, Biology 160: Animal Biology (5 credits) will be waived.
  2. NTC courses 10-806-197: Microbiology (4 credits) will be accepted in lieu of Biology 333: Microbiology (4 credits), and 10-806-177: Gen Anatomy and Physiology (4 credits) will be accepted in lieu of Biology 285: Human Physiology, if a grade of C or better has been earned.
  3. Clinical Laboratory Science course credit will be awarded only if a grade of C or better has been earned at NTC.
  4. The acceptance of credits applies only to students who have successfully passed a national certification through ASCP (certified as a Medical Laboratory Technician) or NCA (certified as a Clinical Laboratory Technician).
  5. The acceptance of credits applies only to this Program-to-Program Articulation.
  6. For acceptance of equivalent courses, NTC courses must have been completed within the last 5 years. Beyond this period of time, course equivalents will be assessed on an individual basis.
  7. This agreement is subject to review if either NTC or UWSP undergoes curriculum revision OR within five years of the origination date of this agreement, whichever occurs earlier.
 
 
Effective Date: January 1, 2007
