Influenza update- posted 7/07/2016
For the 2016-2017 flu season, the Respiratory Therapy Program will no longer accept FLU MIST (nasal spray) per new Federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).  Students must have the influenza vaccination which is offered through Grossmont College Health Services or a physician's office.

Any Prior conviction of a misdemeanor or felony may influence eligibility for licensure as a Respiratory Therapist. A flagged background check or drug screen may also prohibit entrance and/or participation in the Respiratory Therapy Program. Applicants with prior convictions are required to contact the Dean of Allied Health and Nursing for confidential advisement and planning prior to applying to the program. Please visit Respiratory Care Board of California at for general information.

Effective January 01, 2012

If you are enrolled or have accepted a seat into any other Grossmont College Health Professions Program, you will be ineligible to receive an invitation to the Respiratory Therapy Program . Students wishing to apply to the Respiratory Therapy Program must apply for an entry date which does not conflict with the completion of the Health Professions Program you are currently enrolled in.

"All communication between the program office and the student is by email. All emails sent to students on the wait list and currently in the program are sent with a delivery and read receipt. If you chose not to check the read receipt, the program is not responsible if the student states that they did not receive the email".

Effective 12/7/10 the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) will no longer be required.
