Background Check

If you have been arrested, charged, or convicted of any criminal offense, you should investigate the impact that the arrest, charge, or conviction may have on your chances of employment in the field you intend to study.


The Respiratory Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC).

Student Selection

The Respiratory Therapy program enrolls 24 students each fall. In the event more than 24 students apply, priority will be given to students who complete requirements first. In the event multiple students complete all requirements at the same time, GPA in pre-program courses will be the deciding factor.
