There is no specification as to what type of degree it must be.  It can be 
any baccalaureate degree as long as you have at least 30 semester hours of 
biology and chemistry combined.  I have had students with art and 
psychology degrees sit for the HTL exam.  They came back to college to get 
the additional science classes to satisfy the HTL (ASCP) requirement.

Subject:        [Histonet] Bachelor's degrees to sit for HTL

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help my co-worker and myself in 
trying to figure out exactly what we need to do to obtain a bachelor's 
degree that would qualify us to sit for the HTL.  As of right now we both 
have associate's degrees and our HT certification.  We both work full time 
and have children so we cannot attend college full time and would have to 
do most of it online if possible due to our location in South Boston, 

We are trying to figure out how to blend online classes with the science 
classes that may have labs required that we would have to attend campus 

Another question we are having is what specific bachelor's degree do we 
have to obtain, does it have to be a biology degree or a science degree?

Thanks for all your help,

Fawn Bomar
