Program Outcomes Data is available from the Commission of Accreditation for Respiratory Care: https://www.coarc.com/Students/Programmatic-Outcome-Data.aspx
Note: ASU Mid-South’s Respiratory Care program has been placed on probationary accreditation effective November 11, 2017. Based on the 2017 Annual Report of Current Status, the program did not meet the threshold for CRT Credentialing Success (2014-2016). This does not affect students’ ability to graduate from our program or take the National Board of Respiratory Care Examination(s). Enrolled students completing the program under Provisional & Probationary Accreditation are considered graduates of a CoARC accredited program.
