Student selection
The Respiratory Therapy program enrolls 24 students each fall. Students who become LSC students and complete all Respiratory Therapy pre-program requirements will be admitted to the program as long as there are available seats in the program. In the event there are more students than seats available, priority will be given to students who completed their pre-program requirements first. Students are ranked by when pre-program requirements are completed and when they completed their application to LSC / declared Respiratory Therapy as their program. In the event there are multiple students who completed pre-program requirements in the same term AND completed their LSC application on the same date, GPA in pre-program courses will be used as a tie-breaker.
