"The HCA program is an excellent choice for the non-traditional student. This program allowed me to continue working my full-time position as a Medical Laboratory Scientist while completing 2-3 classes per semester. Nearing my program completion an opportunity arose to apply for a position that required a higher level of educational experience than I would have previously qualified for. I believe this program has also set a solid foundation for my completion of a second ASCP certification for the DLM or Diplomat of Laboratory Management. I look forward to applying this knowledge  towards the passing of this certification exam and adding it to my accomplishments."

"As a graduate of the Forensic Sciences program who is above the average student age, I am pleased to say that the administrative track not only was uncomplicated to plan and execute, but also included courses that related directly to my current position as President of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, AAFS.  The program afforded me increased knowledge of the eleven disciplines found within the AAFS and helped me better understand their needs and challenges. My experience at OSU, from the dedicated and caring professors, to the staff who were always willing to answer questions, was not only rewarding but also enjoyable!"
