Pre-Respiratory Therapy - Associate in Science
Students must complete the KCKCC Registered Respiratory Therapist Program and then apply for transfer to the University of Kansas for baccalaureate degree completion. As an alternative, students may complete 60 hours in general education and science at KCKCC and then apply to transfer to the University of Kansas Respiratory Therapy Program. Contact the KCKCC Respiratory Therapy coordinator for information.
The Associate in Science Degree meets the Board of Regents Transfer and Articulation Agreement. A Student completing this program and transferring to a public university, therefore, "will be accepted as having satisfied the general education requirements of all Kansas public universities."
Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
