The Optometry Admission Test (OAT) is a standardized examination designed to measure general academic ability and comprehension of scientific information. All schools and colleges of optometry require the OAT. ALL OAT scores must be sent directly to your designated programs and must be no earlier than two years (24 months) prior to the opening of the current OptomCAS session.
Some schools and colleges also require the TOEFL for international applicants. Please check with the programs for which you plan to apply to clarify if you need to submit a TOEFL score.
