Payment Information

The MCAT Scheduling and 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.

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 register. See the Fee Assistance Program website for complete information, including eligibility, the application process, and associated deadlines.
