OD Professional Licensure General Disclosure

34 CFR § 668.43(a)(5)(v) and (c)

Pacific University provides this General Disclosure to students prior to enrollment or financial commitment. Successful completion of the Doctor of Optometry program has been compared to the educational requirements for licensure or certification required for employment in each State and US Territory. If the program does not meet, or we are unable to determine that the education program meets the educational requirements, we have provided contact information to the licensing board for that State or Territory.

Students are advised to determine, prior to enrollment, whether the program meets licensure requirements in the State or Territory in which the Student is located.

Pacific University determined the State or Territory in which a Student applicant is located as the physical address as noted on the enrollment application. For Student applicants who are members of any branch of the US Military, Pacific University determined the Student’s location is their base or base of deployment.

Students must provide formal notification to Pacific University when the student’s legal residence has changed to another State or Territory and when the new State or Territory is listed on the table below and is noted as Does Not Meet or Unable to Determine.
