MSU RRT to BSRC BSRT Best Online Respiratory Bachelor Completion Program Degree
A Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care affords excellent opportunities for professional growth and development. Midwestern State University is offering our RRT-to-BSRC completion program through distance education.  Courses are taught 100% online via Desire 2 Learn (D2L).
The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Respiratory Care consists of 120 semester hours.  49 semester hours of academic foundation core curriculum work is required for the BSRC degree. Many, if not all of these hours may have been completed during your associate's program. These academic foundation courses may be taken at any appropriately accredited college or university and transferred to MSU. If all academic foundation courses have been completed, you will only be required to complete 10 upper-level respiratory courses (30 hours) through MSU as well as the writing proficiency requirement before graduating with your BSRC. You are granted an additional 39 semester hours for your RRT credential that will go towards your BSRC.



Registered Therapists who wish to begin taking the respiratory care courses should first apply for MSU Texas admission followed by applying to the RRT to BSRC Respiratory Care Program. Please have official transcripts sent to MSU from all colleges or universities you have attended.  Please include an official transcript documenting completion of a Registry-Level Respiratory Program.

Students may enter the RRT-BSRC program in the Fall, Spring, or Summer semester(Summer includes both Summer I and II sessions - 10 weeks).

Midwestern State University requires all students seeking baccalaureate degrees to fulfill the Writing
Proficiency Requirement. Students may fulfill this requirement in ONE of the three following ways:
 Take and pass the Writing Proficiency Examination
 Take and pass ENGL 2113 Intermediate Composition and Grammar.
 Take and pass two courses designated as Writing Intensive (WI). One of these WI courses may
be a Texas Core Curriculum Course, but one of those courses must be outside of the core.

For more information you can visit the Writing Proficiency Webpage or call (940) 397-4131.                                                                                                                                                                                                                              


A minimum grade of 75 (C) is required in all respiratory courses.  Failure to attain a minimum grade of C in these courses will prevent the student from progressing in the program.  A student who fails to achieve a grade of C in any respiratory care course may repeat the course one time.  Any student who fails to achieve a grade of C in any two respiratory care courses will be dismissed and not eligible for re-admission.
