Courses for this program are 100 percent online: no campus visits are required.
Your degree requires 120 credit hours, which may include transfer credits from other regionally accredited institutions.
The courses you take will include:
- MU general education requirements;
- Respiratory therapy core courses;
- Electives fulfilling your concentration area.
The number of credits you need to take will depend on the type of previous credit earned and the institutions' accreditation and transfer equivalencies. The admissions office will determine your transfer credit once they receive your official transcripts and application. Visit the University of Missouri Course Equivalency site to determine credit equivalencies from courses taken at other Missouri institutions.
At least 30 of your last 36 credit hours must come from MU courses completed just prior to graduation; 25 to 26 of these credit hours make up the core curriculum for the respiratory therapy bachelor’s degree advancement.
