If they choose to include a written letter, it must be on official letterhead.
The majority of communication will be sent via e-mail, so be sure to notify us if your contact information changes.
Although ICO will have your prior application materials on file, all re-applicants must submit another application through Optom CAS, including any official transcript(s) not previously verified by Optom CAS.
You need not have completed all admissions requirements at the time of application.
As long as you have taken the Optometry Admission Test by ICO’s application deadline of your desired year of entry and successfully completed all academic requirements by August of your desired year of entry, you may apply.
Again, we encourage you to apply early, even if it means sending these materials later on in the application process.
The Optometry Admission Test is required of all applicants to ICO.
However, ICO recognizes that the “numbers side” of your application is not the only indicator of success.
We are looking for well-rounded, highly motivated, passionate candidates- not just top academic performers.
