Respiratory Therapy Readmission and Transfer Policies and Procedures

Readmission Policy

  1. Applicants must apply to the program as a “readmit” if they have previously been enrolled in any respiratory therapy program and exited for any reason. Transcripts of readmit applicants are evaluated by the Program Chair in consultation with the Dean of Health Sciences. The student will receive a letter from the Program Chair detailing requirements of readmission which may include challenge exams and/or competency check-offs. Students are encouraged to audit classes in order to improve the chances of success on challenge exams and check-offs.
  2. Readmission is allowed twice. All admissions or readmissions in any respiratory therapy program are counted toward this policy.
  3. The applicant must meet admission requirements.
  4. Acceptance into the program is not guaranteed and is based on clinical space available.

Transfer Policy

  1. Applicants must apply to the program as a “transfer” student if they are currently enrolled in a respiratory therapy program or are eligible to continue in their current program. The Program Chair, in consultation with the Dean of Health Sciences, evaluates the core courses for equivalency to determine if transfer credit will be granted. The Registrar evaluates general education courses for credit. The student will receive a letter from the Program Chair summarizing the results of the transcript evaluation including core courses that were accepted for transfer credit and any additional requirements which may include challenge exams and/or competency check-offs.
  2. The applicant must meet admission requirements.
  3. Acceptance into the program is not guaranteed and is based on clinical space available.
