The Rosenberg School of Optometry at The University of the Incarnate Word is committed to educating and preparing students who are caring, compassionate and competent optometrists. RSO actively seeks qualified applicants with a passion for lifelong-learning who are prepared for leadership and service to humankind. Our admissions policy is competitive in order to select those applicants who have the potential for academic success and who will be a credit to the optometric profession as well as the global community.
RSO is processing applications for the 2013-2014 academic year. Applications are processed as they are received and offers of acceptance are made on a rolling basis, therefore we strongly encourage applicants to apply as early as possible during the application period. This rolling admissions process allows qualified individuals to be admitted on a continual basis until the class is filled.
For an applicant to receive full consideration, the following items must be submitted:
- Complete online application* for admission: www.optomcas.org
- Completed RSO Supplemental Form for Admission
- Official Optometry Admission Test (OAT) scores sent directly to UIW RSO
*Please note that official academic transcripts from each college or university attended and letters of recommendation must be sent directly to OptomCAS as part of the central application process.
The Admissions Committee will review all completed applications and will extend invitations for on-campus interviews to those candidates with competitive applications.
Please be aware that all prerequisite courses must be completed before a student can enroll at RSO. If an applicant is in the process of completing a bachelor’s degree and/or prerequisite courses, updated transcripts must be submitted following completion of all coursework.
