In order for an optometry student from another school or college of optometry to be considered for transfer, the following conditions must be met:
All students interested in applying for transfer are encouraged to contact the Dean of Student Affairs and Admissions at UHCO. Because of limited class size and the differences in curricula between institutions, transfers are generally discouraged. However, transfers are considered on an individual basis and depend on current class size, compatibility between the curricula of the two colleges and the reason for the transfer request. Generally, due to differences in course sequences between optometric programs, transfers result in an extension of the professional educational program beyond the minimum of four years.
