licensure disclaimer 

Graduation from the Respiratory Therapy program does not guarantee the ability to obtain a Utah state license to practice as a Respiratory Therapist. Licensure is the exclusive right and responsibility of each state.  In order to work as a Respiratory Therapist, students must satisfy individual state requirements, independent of SLCC graduation requirements. It is highly recommended that students consult in advance with the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL), or similar agencies in other states, to find out more about eligibility for licensure. DOPL can be reached at 801-530-6628 or at their website.

 For students who plan to work as a Respiratory Therapist in another state, here is one suggested website for researching state licensure requirements: License Finder sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor.

If you have difficulty finding the licensure requirements for your state, please contact your academic advisor or SLCC’s state authorization coordinator for help.
