The following courses must be completed at an accredited institution, with a grade of C or higher, by the time you enter the IU School of Optometry.
All course requirements are considered absolute minimums, which must be met or exceeded. Of the 90 credit hours required, at least 20 must be at the 300–400 level. A maximum of 60 credit hours may be taken at a junior college. Up to 10 credits of AP/CLEP coursework is accepted. None of the specified courses may be taken on a pass/fail basis.

CHEM-C 106 and CHEM-C 126 may be substituted for CHEM-C 118.
** A minimum SAT verbal score of 670 or ACT English score of 32 will exempt the student (without credit) from the composition requirement. For other means of completing the composition requirement, consult the IU College of Arts and Sciences Bulletin.
