Admission Events

Consider inviting one of our admissions/student affairs representatives to visit remotely with your college pre-optometry society, pre-health professions club, and other health professions organization. Due to COVID-19 we cannot offer in-person presentations at this time but we are happy to host your group for a virtual information session.

Typically, representatives from UIWRSO travel on a regular basis throughout Texas, the United States and Canada to meet with prospective students. We attend graduate/professional school fairs, health professions fairs and student conferences as well as speak at pre-optometry societies, pre-health professions clubs and other health professions organizations at colleges and universities.

Due to the pandemic, we are not able to offer in-person presentations but we are routinely offering virtual information sessions. Your group will learn more about the optometric profession as well as the quality education offered at UIWRSO to include the academic, clinical and student life experiences. We will also review the admissions process and what it takes to be a competitive applicant. If you would like to request a virtual session for your organization, please e-mail Mr. Eric Tradup, Assistant Director of Admissions and Enrollment Management, at tradup@uiwtx.edu.

We encourage you to check back here often as new programs and visits are added.
