Visits to our Boston campus are strongly encouraged. Many of our students say their visits to the College as applicants influenced their decision to choose NECO.

For students considering an education in optometry, NECO offers visitation opportunities Tuesday through Thursday at 1 pm and Mondays and Fridays at 3 pm.

Interviews are an important part of the admissions process and are offered to strong candidates for admission. An interview is required for admission. Interview days – an opportunity for the College to learn more about each candidate and for each student to learn more about NECO - include one-on-one time with a member of the NECO faculty, conversations with current students, a visit to our Commonwealth Clinic, and a campus tour. These days are held on Mondays and Fridays. If selected for an interview, a member of our admissions office staff will contact you directly.
