Honors & Achievements

We have conferred degrees on healthcare professionals since our first commencement in 1922 as the Pennsylvania State College of Optometry (PSCO). Over the years the name of our institution may have changed, but the excitement and anticipation of commencement day has remained the same.

This is a day of great pride for our graduates as well as their families and friends. The faculty and staff of Salus University are proud of what our graduates have achieved during their time with us and hope you will join us in this celebration of their achievements. Congratulations to the families and friends of the Class of 2020 for your ever-important, unheralded support of your graduate. Congratulations to the Class of 2020! We are proud of what each of you has accomplished.
