Adoption of Revised Standards for New Professional Optometric Degree Programs Seeking Preliminary Approval Preaccreditation Status

Adoption of Revised Standards for New Professional Optometric Degree Programs Seeking Preliminary Approval Preaccreditation Status—Effective January 1, 2019

At its June 20-23, 2018 Annual Meeting, the Accreditation Council on Optometric Education (ACOE) adopted revised standards for professional optometric degree programs seeking preliminary approval pre-accreditation status.  These standards become effective on January 1, 2019.  The AOA Board of Trustees voted at its August 22-26, 2018 meeting to confirm that the standards are not in conflict with AOA policy and that they are within the scope of ACOE’s responsibilities.  These new standards are available on the ACOE’s website on the Accreditation Resources page for professional optometric degree programs.
