PLEASE NOTE: Our clinical sites require that students have a completely clean background for the last 7 years. If the student has any items that show up on their background check, the student will not be allowed to attend the externship. Not attending the externship means the student has failed the entire class.
If the health and screening requirements are met (as shown on the "How To Register" page), and you have been cleared as eligible by the deadline date, then registering for the class depends on your priority registration. Phlebotomy can only take a maximum of 30 students. When the class reaches its registration limit, the registration system will default to putting students on the waiting list.
