Wherever your career takes you, you'll know somebody there.

The Illinois College of Optometry has the largest alumni network of any optometric program in the world. More than 8,000 doctors across the United States and the world call ICO their alma mater. So, whether you practice in your hometown or across the globe, you can count on a quality support network.


Our alumni always have access to transcripts and duplicate diplomas and our extensive library resources. Additionally, ICO’s Student Financial Services Department can help alumni navigate loan repayment options. Most services are offered free of charge to ICO alumni and graduates of our predecessor institutions- Northern Illinois College of Optometry (NICO,) Chicago College of Optometry (CCO) and Monroe/Midwestern College of Optometry (MCO.)


Alumni can find additional tools on My.ICO. This exclusive online resource includes our alumni directory as well as job boards where users can search and share career opportunities.
