About your OAT test results
Frequently asked questions about OAT results
OAT scores are based on the number of correct responses. Please refer to the OAT Guide for detailed scoring information.
Your official test scores will be sent to the schools you designated within 3 to 4 weeks of your test date. These results are shared electronically. If you choose to send scores to additional optometry schools, these will be sent via U.S. Mail and may take longer to arrive.
Once you have taken the OAT, your scores become part of your permanent record and cannot be voided. However, you can take the OAT more than once. Refer to the OAT Guide to learn more about this option.
When you applied to take the OAT, you indicated which optometry schools should receive your results. The Department of Testing Services suggests that you send results to all schools, since there is no charge for this service when you make this selection at the time of registration. (Additional schools can be added later, but a fee will apply.)
The list of optometry programs you choose to receive your scores will appear on your OAT confirmation email. You can also log in later through MyAccount to view the schools you selected.
Yes. Please note that you will pay a fee to send results to schools not designated at the time of your original application. Results will be sent via U.S. Mail, which means they may arrive later than electronic results sent to schools on your original list.
Request additional reports
Once you have submitted your application for the OAT, you cannot change the list of schools you originally chose to receive your test scores. (Note that you can designate any number of schools at no extra charge, but they must be selected at the time you apply for OAT.) After you have registered for the OAT, you can request that reports be sent to additional schools for a fee. Results will be sent via U.S. Mail, which means they may arrive later than electronic results sent to schools on your original list.
Request additional reports
You cannot choose to send only selected test results. Official OAT results are reported electronically within three to four weeks of the testing date to the schools you selected at the time of application. If you have tested more than once, a history of all testing attempts will be reported to the schools you designate.
