The Application Process

Applicants apply to optometry schools through an electronic, centralized application administered by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry called OptomCAS.  Once you complete your OptomCAS application, it will be processed and sent to all the optometry schools you select to receive it.  All schools and colleges of optometry in the United States participate in OptomCAS.

In addition, most optometry schools will require that applicants complete their school-specific supplemental application, after the applicant has completed the OptomCAS application.  Information on each school's supplemental application requirements can be found on the OptomCAS website.
