Optician/Technician Program (AS)
Applications must be submitted to both Indiana University (if not currently enrolled) and the Optician/Technician Program. A new class begins each fall, but students with previous college experience may be able to begin the program in the spring semester by taking one optician/ technician course (TOPT V 153) and completing general education requirements. Early graduation is possible, if the student chooses to attend summer sessions.
Students planning to apply for admission to the Optician/Technician Program should complete courses in high school required for admission to Indiana University. Admission standards can be found in the section of this bulletin entitled “Undergraduate Admissions Policy.” In most cases, current IU students with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above and who are in good standing can expect to be admitted to the Optician/ Technician Program.
