Interview Day Format Reminder

In our 2021-22 format,  admissions interviews will offer candidates the option to choose between either an in-person interview day at the College or a virtual interview day via ZOOM video. In this format, both interview days will be held from 10:00 AM-1:15 PM EST where all Monday interviews will be conducted entirely in-person and all Thursday interviews will be conducted entirely virtual. Please refer to the initial “Invite for Interview” email for an overview of our interview day format.

Updated Spring 2022 Interview Day Protocols (Only Applicable for Candidates Selecting an In-Person Interview Day)

We look forward to interacting with you all and we are committed to doing so in a safe and healthy way above all. Accordingly, in response to the current wave of the Omicron variant and in response to our currently updated safety protocols, proof of full vaccination is now required prior to your in-person interview day and we ask the following of in-person visitors:

  • Visitors who are fully vaccinated are required to provide proof of full vaccination at least 3 business days (72 hours) in advance of their interview day. For further information, please refer to the email, titled ‘SUNY Optometry Interview Day Packet,’ which you will receive around 1 week prior to your interview day.
    • If for whatever reason symptoms develop, please stay home. We will be glad to accommodate virtual arrangements for any scheduled in-person candidate (without rescheduling your day). If your comfort level with an in-person format changes, do not hesitate to let us know. We will be glad to accommodate virtual arrangements for any scheduled in-person candidate (without rescheduling your day).
