How to Register for the MCAT

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), “you are eligible to take the MCAT exam if you are planning to apply to a health professions school.”

To register for the MCAT, follow these steps:

  1. Create an account on the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) website before registration opens.
  2. Keep track of your username, password, and security questions.
  3. Provide the personal information needed, ensuring that the data you provide matches the government-issued ID you intend to use as identification on the day of your test.
  4. Remember that after you’ve filled out all the personal info, you’ll be allowed to register for a test date and pick your preferred location.
  5. Click on “Find Seat” to see what’s available at your chosen location.
  6. If there are seats available, you can register for that test date. If not, search for other locations until you find an open seat.
  7. Keep in mind that you’ll need your credit card information to pay the registration fee. The standard registration fee is $335.

Choosing Your MCAT Test Date

When you take the MCAT depends on a few different factors, which you can determine by asking yourself some questions:

  • Are you planning to apply for med school after your fourth year of college, or are you planning on taking a gap year?
  • How much preparation time do you think you’ll need?
  • Have you completed all the courses that will be on the MCAT?

Ideally, you should choose a date that allows you to have plenty of time to study. You’ll also need to determine when the MCAT score release date is so you can submit your score early in the medical school application process.

If you take the MCAT the spring of your junior year, you’ll have time to retake the MCAT in the summer or following fall, if necessary.

The most important thing when choosing a testing date in ensuring you give yourself enough time to study and that the score release date is before your medical school application is due.
