Financing Optomentry School
Loans are the most common form of financial aid to optometry students. The financial aid offices of the optometry schools that you apply to are important sources of information, as are the sites listed on the Internet Resources page.
Some words of caution about debt: A history of unpaid bills or late credit card payments can lead to a poor credit rating, and this could prevent you from getting the loans you need for your professional education. Since your credit report may contain errors that could cause problems, you should check on your credit status. You can obtain a copy of your credit report from companies such as Experian, TRW Information Services, Equifax Credit Services or Trans Union Credit Information.
