Re: [Histonet] ASCP Exam
The 1/1/05 deadline is for the TAKING of the exam. The APPLICATION deadline
to sign up for the Oct-Dec. 2004 cycle was July 1, 2004.
So if you have not applied before July 1, 2004, it is now too late to sign
up for the high school graduate/2 years on-the-job-training route for the
If you had applied before the 7/1/04 application deadline, but was rejected
by ASCP Board of Registry (BOR) due to having less than 2 years experience,
but you will have two years of experience in before the 1/1/05 deadline, you
have nothing to lose by contacting ASCP BOR and asking them to review your

know of anything you can do to take the HT exam, except to earn an associate
degree with 20 credits of biology and chemistry, or successfully complete a
NAACLS histology program. One option might be Indiana University. Indiana U
does it's training by teleconference and emails, and there are homework
assignments and slides that must be turned in, and exams that must be taken
under the watchful eye of a person in the lab who is a registered HT or HTL.
