Preoptometry is a program rather than a major, and is designed to prepare students for the application process and schooling of a professional Optometry school. Like many professional health programs, Optometry schools do not require a specific major. However, as part of the Preoptometry track, students are required to complete a number of courses that are related to studies at an Optometry school. Courses include chemistry, biology, microbiology, physics, organic biochemistry and human anatomy.

Some schools require different prerequisites; therefore early preparation is critical for students planning to attend Optometry school. Admission requirements for Optometry schools include a bachelor's degree and an acceptable score on the Optometry Admission Test (OAT).

Alpha Epsilon Delta is a student-led organization for students interested in Pre-Health Care programs. AED offers opportunities for intellectual and professional development, provides a forum for students with common interests, and extends a program of service to benefit both the Waco and the Baylor communities.

Baylor University offers several Living-Learning Centers, which are housing opportunities designed to place students of common interests together in living and learning environments. Baylor offers a Science and Health Living-Learning Center where students with common interest in pursuing a career in medicine and the sciences will be able to collaborate with each other as well as science faculty and medical researchers.
