Our online application portal, OptomCAS, opens for the 2023 – 2024 admissions cycle on Thursday, June 29th, 2023! We conduct a rolling admission process based on rounds which runs from June 29th, 2023 to December 1st, 2023 for Fall 2024 entrance. Our admissions deadlines are as follows:

Round 1 – August 25th, 2023
Round 2 – October 13th, 2023
Round 3 – December 1st, 2023

Selection is based on holistic review of the entire application, including previous college-level academic achievement, standardized test scores (Optometry Admissions Test is optional), and qualitative factors such as biographical information, assessment of suitability for performing clinical work, letters of recommendation, interview performance, and life experience. As completed applications are received, applicants will be contacted about invitations to interview.

Applicants may expect to receive their admission decision within three weeks of completing the interview process. Please note your application must be complete and verified by a week after a round deadline, to be considered for admission in that round. If you have any questions, contact our Admissions team at
