We are extending the Respiratory Care Application Deadline to December 1st, 2013 for our January 2014 classes.

We will be having only one late Pre-Admission Conference on November 22nd, 2013 from 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. in Cooper AT 110A. The pre-admission is mandatory for application to the Respiratory Care program.

All individuals who want to be considered for admissions to the Respiratory Care program must:

  1. Complete an application for admission to the Respiratory Care program at Bluegrass Community & Technical College prior to the October 1st deadline
  2. Be eligible for regular college admissions status. Individuals enrolled or admitted on academic probation are not eligible to be candidates to the Respiratory Care program until the academic probation has been cleared.
  3. Submit results of the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) if less than 12 credits of college work have been completed. The college courses must be numbered 100 or higher excluding remedial courses.
  4. Submit an official transcript of all post-secondary education attempted outside of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
  5. Submit statement of work experience pertaining to Respiratory Care and/or observation in this area. (This can be completed during the pre-admission conference.)
  6. Submit documentation of attendance at a pre-admission conference.
  7. BIO 137 and 139 as well as the math requirement must be completed with a grade of “C” or better before starting the Respiratory Care program but not before submitting an application to the program.

In addition students must create a Selective Admissions System (SAS) account. The process for creating a SAS account will be discussed during the pre-admission conference.
