We offer two programs:

Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy Leading to the Registered Respiratory Therapist credential: the Bachelor of Science Program in Respiratory Therapy is a 2+2 program, meaning the student completes the first two years at any accredited college or university of choice, and the last two years at this university. All 2+2 students begin the program fall semester after completing a core curriculum. The program consists of five semesters and includes classroom and clinical education. Only 18% of therapists have a B.S. in Respiratory Therapy. 

Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy Degree Completion Program for RRT’s: the Bachelor of Science Degree Completion Program enables respiratory therapists to earn a bachelor’s degree with minimal disruption to their lives and livelihoods. A bachelor’s degree can increase base pay and enhance competitiveness for positions such as disease or case manager, clinical educator, supervisor, clinical specialist departmental director, clinical sales specialist, and pharmaceutical representative. Approximately a third of respiratory therapists have a bachelor’s or graduate degree. Average salaries for experienced respiratory therapists range from $57,000 to $70,000, depending on job responsibilities, education and location. Download the brochure of the program.
