OPTOMETRY – TRANSFER PROGRAM
Associate of Science – 2 years
The courses listed below represent the most common courses required before admission to a school or college of Optometry; however, the
requirements for admission to each program vary. It is important to check with your advisor as well as the potential schools of transfer for
specific courses needed before admissions.
A student may apply to a school or college of optometry once the school’s program admission requirements are met, which typically includes a
qualifying score on the Optometry Admission Test (OAT). Admission to an optometry school is very competitive. Although it may take only
2-3 years to complete the admission requirements, the trend is for accepted applicants to complete a Bachelor’s degree before entering the
professional school.
