MCAT Test Dates 2016

MCAT test dates for 2016, as well as score release dates, were released by the AAMC last Fall. We have also compiled information from the AAMC regarding MCAT registration and testing centers in the United States, Canada and international locations. Ideally, you would choose an available MCAT test date at a convenient location that allows you the most study time while balancing the score release date which will give you time to submit your MCAT score relatively early in the application cycle.

MCAT Registration Fee

The MCAT registration fee is $305 if made at least three weeks before the exam. There are 3 registration ‘zones’ that have corresponding registration fees, re-scheduling fees, cancellation refund and fee assistance program (FAP) fees. The FAP was designed for students who are unable to finance their MCAT prep. You need to apply for the FAP before your MCAT registration. For more information, click here: FAP

MCAT Testing Centers

There are MCAT testing centers, both on and off campus, from coast to coast in the US and Canada. Additionally, there are numerous MCAT testing centers in international locations as presented in the table below. Note that to register for a seat at an international testing site, you should follow the same process as if registering for a seat in the US or Canada. Since the dates and seats at international locations are limited, plan ahead to avoid disappointment. If you need to travel and stay in a hotel, check out the AAMC’s Hotel Discount Program .

        International sites include all countries, provinces, or territories except Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

        Payment Information

        The MCAT Registration System accepts only VISA and MasterCard, including debit cards with the VISA or MasterCard logo. We regret we are unable to accept other forms of payment.

        We will process your registration immediately upon submission. The registration process cannot be reversed once it has begun, and thus you will be responsible for all fees. If you reverse the credit card charge, or if payment is declined for any reason, you must provide an alternative form of payment on request. Otherwise, the AAMC will cancel your registration, withhold all scores (even scores from previous years), and disallow future registration and other services until arrears are made current.

        Examinees may be required to pay applicable sales tax, value-added tax, Goods and Services Tax, or similar taxes required by law in the country or locality in which they are testing. If taxes are applicable, they will be collected at the time of scheduling. For up to date information, please review Pearson VUE’s Tax FAQs ( ).

        Fee Assistance Program

        The AAMC’s Fee Assistance Program aids individuals with extreme financial limitations who otherwise could not take the exam.

        Please be aware that you must receive a final Fee Assistance Program approval before you select your test date and location. See the Fee Assistance Program website for complete information, including eligibility, the application process, and associated deadlines.

        In 2019, the AAMC and the Association of Faculties of Medicine in Canada (AFMC) are piloting a fee assistance program for Canadian  examinees who register to test during the 2019 testing year. Canadian examinees who are eligible and qualify, will receive reduced scheduling, rescheduling, and cancellation rates. For more information about this pilot, please click here . Questions regarding the application, evaluation, or qualification process, visit AFMC at .

        Updated May 16, 2017

        Taking the MCAT is no easy feat, and paying for it isn’t either, especially if you’re a poor college kid working your way through undergrad. So, how much does the MCAT cost? Good question. Here’s the answer:

        Note: The MCAT fees below are only payable in U.S. dollars.

        The MCAT costs are divided into three zones: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Read on for the benefits and costs of each.

        The Gold Zone

        If you take a peek at the MCAT registration dates , you’ll see that the Gold zone is the earliest zone in which to register, and registering early has its advantages! There is more flexibility for dates and locations, to begin with. And when you register in the Gold Zone, you can get a partial refund if you need to cancel for any reason. Plus, this zone offers the lowest MCAT fees all around.

        * Gold Zone Registration *

        • Registration Fee: $305
        • Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Fee: $75 extra
        • Cancellation Refund $150
        • International Fee: $95 extra

        The Silver Zone

        If you miss registering in the Gold zone, there are still benefits to getting in a little bit earlier. First, the registration fee does not increase at all. Plus, you can still reschedule your test date or test center if you need to. If you need to cancel, though, you’re out of luck where you cash is concerned!

        * Silver Zone Registration *

        • Registration Fee: $305
        • Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Fee: $135 extra
        • NO Cancellation Refund
        • International Fee: $95 extra

        The Bronze Zone

        If you’re late registering for the MCAT, the good news is that you can still take it. The bad news is that you’re going to have to pay a bit more for the test than if you’d planned ahead.

        * Bronze Zone Registration *

        • Registration Fee: $355
        • NO Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Option
        • NO Cancellation Refund
        • International Fee: $95 extra

        I Can’t Afford MCAT Fees!

        The AAMC does offer a fee assistance program (FAP) for students who just can’t afford to pay the MCAT registration fees, but the benefits of the program vary according to which registration period you choose to use.

        * Gold Zone FAP Program *

        • Registration Fee: $115
        • Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Fee: $35 extra
        • Cancellation Refund $60
        • International Fee: $95 extra

        * Silver Zone FAP Program *

        • Registration Fee: $115
        • Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Fee: $55 extra
        • NO Cancellation Refund
        • International Fee: $95 extra

        * Bronze Zone FAP Program *

        • Registration Fee: $165
        • NO Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Option
        • NO Cancellation Refund
        • International Fee: $95 extra
