Respiratory Care (0366)
In addition to the application forms submitted to the admissions office for admission to the college, students applying to the Respiratory Program for the first time or reapplying for any reason are required to submit a separate application for selection into the Respiratory Program. Applications are available in the Allied Health Division Office or they may be downloaded from the Darton Website for students interested in enrolling in the Respiratory Program. There are separate application packets for the regular program track or the evening and weekend track.
To be considered for selection into the Respiratory Care Program, a completed program application must be received. The application deadline for the daytime track is July 1st. The application deadline for the evening and weekend track is December 1st. Applications received after the deadline will be considered only if the class has not been filled. The Respiratory Care Program has a limited enrollment; students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Students are selected on the basis of:
- Grade point average in pre-requisite courses.
- Overall grade point average and number of credits earned.
Excessive withdrawals from pre-requisite courses may negatively impact a student’s application:
- Completed application packet materials.
- An interview with program faculty.
An offer of acceptance is made to the applicants who achieve the highest rankings in the selection process. The selection process continues until the class is filled.
Associate Degree graduates of the Darton College Respiratory Care Program may be eligible to receive advanced placement in the Bachelor of Science programs in Respiratory Care offered by the four-year institutions of the University System of Georgia. Students desiring to complete a Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care should make direct inquiry to the institution of choice.
