If you see optometry in your future, you can take advantage of a special program that permits you to enter optometry college after only three years of undergraduate study.

This is how it works: With careful planning, you'll complete most of the required courses within three years. Once you have been admitted to optometry school, you can complete your bachelor's degree, which will be awarded by Ithaca College during the first year. After another three years of optometry study you'll earn a doctor of optometry degree.

The schools with which we maintain this affiliation agreement are the:

  • Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCOM)
  • SUNY College of Optometry (NYCOM)
