A student profile for a recent entering class for all IUP freshman was an average SAT score of 1000 (Mathematics and Critical Reading sections only) and an average cumulative high school grade point average of 3.2. There are no special admission requirements for acceptance into the respiratory care major.

Respiratory care students are encouraged to join nursing, nuclear medicine technology, and clinical laboratory science students in a living-learning communitylocated in Suites on Maple East. This option provides an excellent opportunity to share living space with students who have similar interests and similar curriculum requirements.
The respiratory care curriculum includes many challenging courses. IUP offers walk-in peer tutors, special supplemental instruction tutoring sessions, and other support services which help students succeed and excel. For more detail, visit the Department of Developmental Studies. The allied health coordinator is the academic advisor for respiratory care students and can also assist with plans for academic success.
Before starting courses taught at the School of Respiratory Care, students will need to meet special requirements that include health screening and a criminal background check.
Students must have at least a 2.0 grade point average to be accepted into the respiratory care major. For more information about the program, about progression criteria and special requirements, and for assistance in developing a potential plan of study, contact the allied health coordinator.
Students must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 from all postsecondary institutions attended. There are no special admission requirements for acceptance into the respiratory care major. For more details about the application process and to apply, visit Undergraduate Admissions.
