Application Information and Packet
Please note this important information in effect for 2022-2023 admission:
The program’s application window is April 1 – May 15.
The Respiratory Care Program accepts online applications via this link. The student’s application must not be submitted until all three prerequisite courses (https://www.polk.edu/respiratory-care/respiratory-care-curriculum/) have been completed. If a student is currently enrolled in any prerequisite courses during the spring semester, he or she should NOT submit the application until the grades have been posted. The application is reviewed “as is” when it is received. A student who submits an incomplete application is not considered for admission.
Please review the application checklist before submitting the final application. Questions about the application process can be directed to the Respiratory Care Program Director.
