Georgia State’s undergraduate respiratory therapy students push themselves to succeed. For five years running, they achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) exam, surpassing the national average for all students taking the RRT exam.
These results earned recognition from the accrediting organization in this field. The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) gave its Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award to Georgia State. CoARC requires a pass rate of 90 percent on successive years to be eligible for the award.
