Ophthalmic Medical Assistant Admissions

How do you apply for admission to the OPHT Program?

Delgado Community College is an open admissions college; however, acceptance into the OPHT Program is by selection. The admissions committee for the OPHT Program reviews and evaluates each application on an impartial basis. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into the program. Students wishing to apply for admission to the OPHT Program must submit a completed OPHT application to the Division of Allied Health NO LATER THAN July 30 for the August class. Persons accepted into the OPHT Program will be required to meet the technical standards of the COA profession which are available for review in the Allied Health Admissions Office. Students are also required to comply with all hospital and clinical affiliate on-boarding requirements and processes. For more information on these requirements, please contact the program director.

When should you apply for admission to the OPHT Program?

To be eligible to apply to the OPHT program, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Provide evidence of a high school diploma or equivalent.
  • Earn a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all college courses.
  • Score on ACT, SAT or Delgado placement test sufficient to place the student in college level courses (English 101, Math 099 and no remedial reading).

Upon eligibility, the student should request the current complete information and application packet from the Allied Health Admissions Office.
