SCO has established the honorary degrees of Doctor of Ocular Science and Doctor of Humane Letters to recognize worthy individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the public good. SCO grants these honorary degrees to those whose achievements are in concert with the mission of the College, the profession of optometry, and the public at large. Recipients of honorary degrees will forever be associated with the college; therefore, recipients of an honorary degree from Southern College of Optometry must be of sufficient stature and character as to honor the College.
