Yes. No. Sort of.
I do not know of any NAACLS-accredited histology program where you
the courses on-line, and "graduate" from the histology program.
I know of two NAACLS-accredited HT programs that might be of
depending upon your need.
1. Indiana University School of Medicine
This is a 10 month program, taught via weekly 1 1/2 hour
There is also additional homework, exams, slides that need to be
special stains that need to be done. These are mailed to IU, and are
This is set up for people ALREADY working in a histology lab, but
need/want additional help learning about histotechnology and
the registry exams.
Upon completion, you receive 24 college credits from Indiana

If I remember correctly, they only take about 24 sites

coursework via the internet and email. Someone at the college would
grade these people's homework.
However, if I understood Floyd correctly, these people would NOT be
