Registration for the January-June MCAT exam dates will open on October 25, 2018. Registration to select test dates for July-September will open in February 2019.
Students will have the ability to begin their registration process in advance of selecting their test date and location. Beginning next week, students will be able to complete the necessary background and biographical information and agree to the terms. The option to select a date and location will not be available until registration officially opens on October 25.
Starting the registration process early will allow you more time to enter your personal information and read and accept important MCAT policies and forms carefully before searching for a test date and location on October 25. Completing personal information and terms in advance does not give students priority in selecting their test date and location.
