Visit Us

We want to meet you! The Ohio State University College of Optometry conveniently offers several unique opportunities for prospective students to visit campus in person or virtually.

In-Person Tours

Our admissions staff schedules one-on-one, personalized appointments with students to discuss the admissions process and any other information a student may want to cover.  These meetings are scheduled throughout the year.

Virtual Visit

If you're unable to come to Columbus for an in-person visit, try a virtual visit!

Or, we can visit you!

Our admissions team visits colleges and universities throughout North America to meet with student clubs, organizations and classes. Are you interested in having us come to your school? Request a visit from our admissions team to your Pre-Optometry Club or Organization. 

Admissions Visit Day

The Ohio State University College of Optometry offers you a special opportunity to explore careers in optometry, tour our clinical facilities, learn more about the admissions process, and meet with college faculty, students, and administrators at Admissions Visit Day, typically held each fall. We encourage high school and college students, as well as any academic and career counselors to attend.

If you experience any issues scheduling through any of the links, please contact us at or call 614-292-2647.
