This is the standard way most students apply. Decisions will be made as early as September and continue until the class is filled.
Though the Application deadline is March 1, applicants are advised to submit applications during the summer or fall the year prior to the class entering in August.
JOINT DEGREE (students should inquire with the Admissions Office of their undergraduate college or SUNY Optometry to see which undergraduate colleges offer this option)
This option allows students to attend SUNY Optometry after three years of undergraduate college and receive a BS degree from their undergraduate college after completing our first year. They then continue at SUNY Optometry for the full 4 years to receive the OD degree. Applicants with strong academic backgrounds can be accepted provisionally into the Joint Degree Program directly out of high school or anytime during their first two years of undergraduate college.
