Southern College of Optometry collects applications via a centralized service called OptomCAS which begins accepting applications on June 30 for the 2022-2023 admissions cycle. SCO's application deadline is March 1 of each academic year. Since we process applications as we receive them and offer acceptances on a rolling basis, we strongly encourage early application.
Candidates must take the OAT by March 1 of the entering year for which they are applying.
