Cohort and schedule
Students will become part of a cohort (a group of students who take classes together). The Ophthalmic Medical Technology program is an Associate of Applied Science Degree program. Students attend full time during the day for 7 terms.
After admission to the program, but before beginning directed practice, students may be required to complete some or all of the following: criminal background check, proof of immunizations, and a ten-panel drug screening. There will be a cost to the student associated with completing this requirement (see program costs).
