(Press Release) ELKINS PARK, PA – Salus University Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Elkins Park, PA, and Seton Hill University in Greensburg, PA, have announced an articulation agreement. Under the 3+4 degree program articulation agreement, students who successfully complete the 90 semester credit pre-optometry curriculum at Seton Hill with a 3.0 GPA or above may apply for admission to the Salus University Doctor of Optometry four-year degree program.
"We are excited about this new agreement with Seton Hill University, an institution that shares our commitment to training the future practitioners of primary healthcare," said Dr. Melissa Trego, interim dean of the university’s Pennsylvania College of Optometry. “By offering motivated students the ability to complete their undergraduate degree in three years, we are able to provide qualified students with the opportunity to begin their Doctor of Optometry education a full year earlier than the traditional route.”
