Southern College of Optometry announces a stellar performance in every category for the Class of 2018 according to the National Board of Examiners in Optometry (NBEO) report by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry.
This data, compiled by the NBEO in conjunction with ASCO member institutions from October 2017 to September 2018, includes the first-time pass rates for each school/college on Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the exam, the ultimate pass rate for each institution, and national averages for all of the above.
"These results are something to be proud of, and they would not be so consistently excellent without the hard work of our faculty and students and the support from our staff,” said J Bart Campbell, OD, FAAO, SCO's Vice President of Academic Affairs.
SCO was the only optometry school to score 100% in the Ultimate Pass Rate category for the Class of 2018, according to the report.
"SCO faculty and staff provide a learning environment conducive to success and we have the brightest students with the discipline to achieve success. This is one more reason we can all be proud to be part of this institution and I look forward to celebrating all of our future successes!"
This information will be updated and published on the ASCO website each fall.
