Preoptometry

The term “preoptometry” does not refer to a specific major at Westmont. Rather, this designation indicates an intention to prepare for admission to an optometry school in addition to completing a major. This track essentially entails completing the appropriate prerequisites, maintaining a high GPA, taking the Optometry Admission Test (OAT), participating in appropriate extracurricular activities, forming a recommendation committee, and completing applications to optometry schools.
