State Respiratory Care Boards – Licensure Disclosure

Illinois Central College is regionally accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The Respiratory Therapist Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (COARC), and is reporting this information in compliance with the federal guidelines on the Respiratory Therapy Practice Act.

This program is designed to meet the educational requirements for respiratory therapists in Illinois. If you intend to seek licensure outside of Illinois after finishing your program, use the link below to find information on the state or U.S. territory in which you intend to be licensed in order to identify whether ICC’s Respiratory Therapist program meets, does not meet, or if it has not been determined if it meets the educational requirements for licensure. If ICC’s program has not determined if it meets the educational requirements for licensure in the state in question, it may meet all or a portion of the educational requirements. If that is the case, we recommend that you contact the licensing agency directly before beginning the ICC program.
