What You Should Know — Optometry Admissions and SCCO

Parents with Questions? Here’s How Parents May Contact SCCO Admissions


Class of 2013’s Robbie Simons is congratulated by his father, also an optometrist.

SCCO Admissions welcomes interactions with parents! Even though it is the student who wears the White Coat and goes to class, support from family members—especially parents—is vital to a student’s success. At Commencement, when the graduate steps up on that platform and receives their Doctor of Optometry degree, it is a victory for the whole family.

Research shows that more and more, parents are influencing their son or daughter’s choice in an optometry program. Let’s face it—parents expect a good ROI (return on investment). It is natural for them to want to be part of the selection process when it comes to the many aspects of choosing not only optometry, but an optometry program—especially a clinical education program—entrusted to prepare a student for not only optometric practice, but managing both their business and their professional career as well.2011-566-408
