Class of 2024,
SCO traditionally welcomes an entering class of students with their White Coat and Honor Code Ceremony. Receiving one’s white coat signifies one of the most important steps on the road to becoming a healthcare professional.
Because of the challenges presenting by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, SCO will be delaying this year’s ceremony. The college’s top priority remains welcoming our new first-year students and keeping them as safe as possible. The logistics of hosting upwards of 500 people on campus will mean postponing the ceremony until a later date in the year as we work out the best possible way to welcome as many of you as possible for a safe gathering.
To the parents and family members of the Class of 2024, we know that your support and understanding will mean so much to our first-years who are anxious to start their optometric education in a safe and productive manner. We will communicate as soon as possible once additional planning details may be shared.
Please note that entering students still must submit their white coat measurements as directed on the Final Acceptance Page. https://www.sco.edu/final-acceptance-page.
