Admission into the Respiratory Therapy Program is competitive and only qualified applicants will be considered and granted provisional admission to the program. To ensure compliance with the CoARC, the Program Director of Respiratory Therapy determines the availability of seating for the program based on perspective clinical education centers. Consequently, a student who meets all requirements may not be accepted into the program due to limited student capacity.

Applicants requesting enrollment into the Respiratory Therapy Program must:

  1. Complete all RCC admission, placement testing, and course requirements.
  2. Complete the Health Sciences Respiratory Therapy Admissions packet by the specified deadline. Students must have a 2.8 GPA or higher to be considered for admission.
  3. Complete BIO 168, BIO 169, ENG 111, and MAT 143 prior to admission with a “C” or higher.
  4. A minimum grade of “C” is required in all elective courses that are part of the Respiratory Therapy curriculum.
  5. Only science and math courses earned in the past five years will be accepted.
  6. All students who are accepted into the Respiratory Therapy program are required to attend program orientation. If a student fails to attend program orientation, the student’s acceptance may be withdrawn.
