- In order to participate in lab, students must be wearing floor-length pants, closed-toe, closed heel shoes. Pants may not have rips, tears, etc. Students must also wear a liquid impervious lab coat, gloves and a face shield (available in SCC bookstore) whenever handling clinical specimens. Additional classroom/lab materials and guidelines will be on the course syllabus addendum distributed by the instructor.
An overall grade of C or higher is required for transferability.
