About SCO

Students looking for an exceptional optometric education at one of the nation’s premier schools of optometry should consider the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee, home of The Eye Center, one of the most advanced eye care centers in the nation.

The college’s academics feature intensive and immersive training in The Eye Center and various schools for internship and externship experience. By directly involving yourself in the profession, you will learn how to operate in a professional environment.

Students have access to extracurricular learning activities designed to complement their classroom and lab education. By providing care to assisted living homes or attending local conferences for vision screenings, they will have the chance at a well-rounded educational experience.

To enhance your college life, a number of student groups and professional organizations are available to join. From Beta Sigma Kappa to the American Optometric Student Association to the Contact Lens Society, you are likely to find a group suited for you.

All students, no matter where they are from, may apply for financial aid by filing a FAFSA. Eligible members of the student body may receive some form of tuition assistance through programs like direct student loans, work-study programs and alternative loans.
