The Armstrong State University Medical Laboratory Science Program was established in April 1982. In September 1982, the first class was accepted for enrollment into a "2 + 2" curriculum. In April 1985, the program was granted full accreditation for 5 years (1985-1990) by the Committee on Allied Health Education and Accreditation (CAHEA) of the American Medical Association (AMA). The program received continuing accreditation by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) for four consecutive periods of seven years (1990-1997, 1997-2004, 2004-2011, and 2011-2018).
