¿Qué aprenderé?

The USC Upstate Pre-Optometry program is an advisement track within the biology degree program. Although optometry schools do not generally require a bachelor’s degree, very few students enter without completing one. Students already having a degree and aiming for optometry school should concentrate on taking the specific courses that will best prepare them for taking the Optometry Admission Test (OAT).

Optometry school admission is on a competitive basis. Important factors considered by admission committees are grade point averages (GPA), OAT scores, letters of recommendation, service activities and health-related experiences.

Applications to most optometry schools are coordinated through a central service (Optometry College Application Service or Optom(CAS). Students should complete their applications to medical schools no later than October of the year before they expect to enter optometry school.
