(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.”

Seton Hill Provost Susan Yochum said: “Seton Hill University is pleased to partner with Salus University Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Like Seton Hill, Salus University’s commitment to innovative student learning is paramount. Our partnership will provide Seton Hill students interested in optometry with an extraordinary venue to attain their educational and career goals. Seton Hill’s growing programs in the health sciences and the University’s affiliations with leading medical programs such as Salus University illustrate Seton Hill’s dedication to training healthcare practitioners of the future.”
