Cytotechnology & Medical Technology Advising


The cytotechnology major at SUNY Plattsburgh will be discontinued at the end of the 2023–24 academic year due to changes in requirements put forth by our clinical affiliate. Students whose prospective graduation date occurs after Summer 2024 are no longer eligible for this major. Transfer students who will complete all degree requirements prior to the 2023–24 clinical internship may still enroll in this program after consultation with the program advisor

Appointments for Advising


Competency Exam Schedule


  • Mathematics Competency Exam/Calculus Readiness Test (or pass MAT 102): All students must take and pass a calculus readiness test if you want to enroll in MAT 221, 224 or 228. If you fail to pass the test, you must take MAT 102 – precalculus. If you have college credit for precalculus, you may enroll directly in the calculus course without taking the readiness test. However, if transfer credit is not posted, you will need to be provided an override by the department chair. If you wish to take MAT 224 or 228 you must also pass MAT 104 – trigonometry.
  • Library Proficiency Exam: Register for the exam.
