1. Enrollment in this course is limited to students accepted to technical study which is a selective process based on the following criteria: Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.700, college or high school biology, chemistry and take or test out of MATH 00023 or equivalent, and complete four (4) hours of job shadowing experience for admission to the program.
2. Students who have successfully completed ATTR/EXSC 25057/25058 Human Anatomy and Physiology I/II may use those courses in place of BSCI 20020 Biological Structure and Function or BSCI 11010/11020 Anatomy and Physiology in Allied Health I/II.

All courses required in Respiratory Therapy Technology require a minimum C (2.000) grade.
