Connect with SCCO Admissions + Student Ambassadors In Person or Virtually!

We love connecting with prospective students and have a variety of ways to do so in person and virtually.

We look forward to connecting with you soon!

During the Application Cycle which runs from July 1 through March 15 admissions officers schedule monthly drop in sessions to help candidates who have questions about their application. No RSVP required, just drop in and get your questions answered! Details will be posted soon, but in the meantime feel free to email your questions or request for an advising session to us at and we will be happy to assist you!

Navigating Grad School Applications as a 1st Generation College Student  |  Thursday, May 2, 2024  |  4-5pm PT

Applying for grad school can be overwhelming no matter what your background is, but for those who don't have family members who have paved the way, it can be hard to even know where to start. Nearly half of the students at MBKU identify as "first generation" in some way. Meet some Student Ambassadors who've navigated the path and learn how to blaze the trail for your family with their guidance, tips and encouragement! RSVP here.

MBKU will be hosting tours for prospective students and their guests this summer during June and July. Space is limited, so RSVP is required and will be available soon!

Looking for a great place to shadow? We'd love to host you at the University Eye Center at Ketchum Health in Anaheim! Experience clinic life, observe patient care, and chat with current students for a few hours as you shadow 3rd and 4th-year optometric interns and meet faculty. Click here to submit your request.
