Optometry - Combined B.S./O.D. Program

The New England College of Optometry maintains an affiliation with the University of Hartford in a joint B.S./O.D. program which allows students to enter the University of Hartford with a conditional acceptance to the New England College of Optometry. Students must maintain a 3.40 GPA and score appropriately on the OAT while at the University of Hartford, and any other entrance requirements.  This is an accelerated program that is academically demanding and students must complete 90 credits at the University of Hartford and have no grades in required courses that are less than a "C" .  Students should send a letter of intent to the Office of Admissions at the New England College of Optometry on matriculation at the University of Hartford. Students who complete the joint degree will save one year of time in their education as well as one year of tuition and related expenses.  To review a suggested curriculum for the joint program click here.
