The Department of Respiratory Therapy

Welcome! Our University houses the country's largest baccalaureate school for Respiratory Therapy, while other programs only offer an associate degree. An increasing number of employers are looking for candidates with a bachelor's degree and we are here to meet that need for you!

For your convenience, we offer our Respiratory Therapy associate and bachelor's degree programs in three locations: Weber State University's main campus in Ogden, UT,  Davis campus in Layton, UT and Farmington Station, Farmington, UT.


  Along with WSU's Regional Accreditation, our individual programs are accredited with their appropriate associations  



    Our program is accredited by The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC). "The mission of the CoARC is to ensure that high quality educational programs prepare graduates to be competent respiratory therapists with proficiency in practice, education, research and service."

    CoARC publishes graduate students' outcomes for all programs.

The outcomes reported on the CoARC website are within a 3-year time period and include: CRT credentialing success; RRT credentialing success; achievement of the high cut score on the TMC Exam (beginning 2018); retention (attrition); job placement; overall graduate satisfaction; overall employer satisfaction; on-time graduation rate; total number of program enrollees; total number of program graduates; and maximum annual enrollment.
