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.

We will be hosting a Virtual Admissions Visit Day on Saturday, December 19, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST . Please click here for more information and to register.   

Improving Diversity in Optometric Careers (I-DOC) is an intensive four-day program that introduces underrepresented undergraduate college students to the profession of optometry. This award-winning program is competitive with a limited number of space. This year, due to COVID-19, I-DOC will be held virtually June, 6 – 9, 2022 in half-day sessions that will be accessible for students in all time zones and feature nationally and internationally known optometrists. Applications are being accepted now through April 30th. For more information, please visit: https://u.osu.edu/idoc.

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 and are available, Monday-Thursday anytime from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  To schedule a meeting, call 614-292-2647 or email admissions@optometry.osu.edu

Our admissions team travels to colleges and universities throughout North America meeting with student clubs, organizations, and classes.  Are you interested in having us come to your school?  To schedule a visit, contact Justin Griest, Director of Admissions, Recruitment & Financial Aid, at gilbert.351@osu.edu
