Attention All Applicants and Respiratory Therapy Students
 Student Information


Please be aware that students accepted to the Health Professions Programs (Nursing, RT, CVT, Ortho Tech, OTA) at Grossmont College are required to undergo a background check and/or a urine drug screening test before starting the program or being placed at a clinical site. We expect the cost of these procedures may be $70 - $120. The student will be responsible for paying these fees.

It should be noted that failure to pass either or both of these procedures may interfere with clinical placement and/or acceptance of the student into his / her selected program.

In addition to the background check and drugscreen, incoming students will be required to complete the follow:

  • Physical
  • TB test
