The courses required for admission to the nineteen optometry schools in the United States vary slightly from school to school. Completion of the courses listed below will satisfy the admission requirements at the three optometry schools in the northeastern states: SUNY-Optometry, Pennsylvania College of Optometry, and New England College of Optometry. Completion of these courses will also satisfy the course admission requirements at the majority, but not all of the remaining optometry schools. For information about the admission requirements at a specific school, contact the school or see Dr. Armstrong.
*Many optometry schools including New England require only a one semester organic chemistry course with laboratory (CHEM 226 – Elementary Organic Chemistry). 3+4 program with SUNY Optometry and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry will accept a combination of one semester of organic chemistry (CHEM 226) and a semester of biochemistry (CHEM 330 – Introductory Biochemistry) as an alternative to the full year of organic chemistry.
