Accreditation Status: Approval of Intent

Date of Approval of Intent: July 7, 2017

The next Respiratory Care class will begin Spring Semester, January 2018, pending approval of the Provisional Self Study Report (PSSR), site visit report, and recognition of provisional accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC). Because the program was below the threshold of 80% for credentialing success on the Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) credential, for the three-year average (2011, 2012, 2013), the program was placed on probation by CoARC. Upon review of the first year of probation, the three-year average for the above cohorts remained below threshold. Therefore, the program submitted an application for voluntary withdrawal of accreditation, effective February 8, 2016. The December 2016 graduating class and all former graduates are eligible to sit for the NBRC examinations. Program applicants are encouraged to continue working toward the completion of all general education courses, and meeting with the program advisor(s) routinely to maintain communication during this transitional period.
