Financial Assistance for Psychoeducational or Medical Re-evaluations

Financial Assistance for Psychoeducational or Medical Re-evaluations

We are pleased to offer financial assistance of up to $800 to recipients of the AAMC's Fee Assistance Program (FAP) whose most recent evaluation does not meet the recency requirements associated with their request for accommodations.

This financial assistance is not available for first-time psycho-educational or medical evaluations. All applicants will need to submit a comprehensive evaluation that no longer meets our recency requirements in order to be considered for assistance. Additionally, the benefit may not be used retroactively for previously completed evaluations.

Please note that an approval for financial assistance for a re-evaluation does NOT guarantee an approval for accommodations on the MCAT exam.
