Student Handbook

All efforts have been made prior to have accurate information, websites, phone numbers, addresses and accurate and up-to-date information as it applies to the Fall 2020 learning environment within the COVID-19 information/adjustments. Changes made to the UB learning environment will be released to students in as timely fashion as possible.

Any omissions should be brought to the attention of the MT Program Director and/or BLCS Program Academic Advisor.

 Errors in releasing information to students are not intentional.

“The American Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against academically qualified program applicants with disabilities, and requires a list of essential requirements, distinct from essential functions of jobs, for each academic program.  Essential requirements, also called technical standards or functional expectations, are task and attribute-based criteria that define their educational program.  Applicants and students must possess or be able to achieve the essential requirements directly or through reasonable accommodation.”

All students in BCLS programs (Medical Laboratory Science and Biotechnology) are provided a copy of the Essential Functions with their offer letter of acceptance into the program.  Essential Functions are published within this handbook.
