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.

We routinely offer virtual series on the Optometry profession, unique elements of our program, and admissions. We offer customized virtual information sessions for Pre-Optometry and Pre-Health student organizations. Your group can learn more about the optometric profession and 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.
