Medical College Admissions Test [MCAT]

All candidates are required to sit for the Medical College Admissions Test. Opens External Link Beginning in 2007, the MCAT became a fully computerized test and will be offered thirty-one (31) times on a national basis. Students following a regular program should take the MCAT in the spring of their junior year [April or May]. Scores are received within thirty-days of administration. A student should complete all admissions requirements prior to taking the test. Taking it "for practice" is not recommended since the resulting scores will become a permanent part of the applicant’s record. The test must be taken no later than the November test preceding the year of anticipated admission. Students are urged to apply early and prepare adequately for the test.

The College of Medicine will accept scores from MCAT's taken no longer than five (5) years prior to the year of desired matriculation.
