The agreement allows two students per year to apply to the Pennsylvania College of Optometry Doctor of Optometry Program at the end of their second year. To apply through the program, students must have at least a 3.3 overall GPA both at the time of application and during their third year. In order to be prepared for the OAT exam after the second year, students need to complete their chemistry and physics requirements as well as a year of biology. If accepted, students will enter the program following their third year. After the completion of their first year at Salus, Elizabethtown College will accept transfer credits for classes at Salus for completion of the student’s undergraduate degree. Students need to complete their Core requirements during their three years at Elizabethtown before beginning their courses at Salus.
