Finding the Best Clinical/Medical Laboratory Science Bachelor's Degree School for You

In 2019-2020, 17,129 people earned a degree or certificate in clinical/medical laboratory science, making the major the #14 most popular in the United States.

There are lots of options to pick from today when trying to decide which trade school program is right for you. As online education oppotunities continue to grow, you're not restricted to just schools in your local area anymore. Even some of the 'big name' schools are offering online courses.

Along with in-depth profiles of schools and the programs they offer, Trade College Search has created the Best Value Clinical/Medical Laboratory Science Bachelor's Degree Schools to help you in your search for the best school for you. Our analysis looked at 226 schools in the United States to see which bachelor's degree programs offered the best value experiences for clinical laboratory science students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
