Because of COVID-19, we are currently limited in our ability to host large in-person campus tours. While we are able to schedule campus tours on a limited basis, we are pleased to offer virtual counseling sessions using Microsoft TEAMS. If you are interested in more information about scheduling a campus tour or a virtual counseling session, please email [email protected].

A campus tour is a good way to meet an admissions officer and see what SCO has to offer before you begin optometry school. The best time to visit is a year or two prior to when you intend to apply.
Guided tours by SCO Student Ambassadors are provided to interested candidates during our regular business hours Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. by appointment only. To schedule an appointment with an admissions officer, please contact the Office of Student Services at (901) 722-3224 or (800) 238-0180.
Though we highly encourage you to come and see SCO in person, if you cannot make the trip to Memphis, you can experience a bit of our campus through our online interactive tour.
