Pre-Optometry advising at Butler is geared toward undergraduate students who intend to apply to a graduate level health professional school. You will be advised by designated faculty advisors, and will also have a second, pre-health academic advisor who will ensure you understand which courses you need to take to satisfy prerequisites for Optometry school. We also will provide information on selection and applying to professional schools.

As a Pre-Optometry student, you will declare a separate major, but will have access to a variety of services, including pre-optometry advising.
