All of us here at SCO are so excited to welcome you to our community! The entire college has been working diligently over the past few months to ensure that the Orientation experience for you is informative, engaging, safe and fun!
Every aspect of the Orientation schedule is REQUIRED attendance/viewing for all Class of 2026 students; from videos you can watch at home, to the days you’ll be asked to physically come to campus. Failing to complete or attend anything listed on the schedule will be synonymous with missing Orientation as a whole.
Please note: online does not mean optional.
If there are any pressing extenuating circumstances that prevent you from completing or attending anything on the Orientation schedule, please email [email protected] ASAP.
Continue to check your email, this webpage, and the Class of 2026 IRIS page on a regular basis. These will be your one-stop shops when looking for updates or instructions.
Thank you all for your flexibility, adaptability and follow-through as we head into your first year with Southern College of Optometry.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions, or if we can assist in your transition to Memphis.
In the meantime, take care, and we’ll be seeing you all soon!
