MCAT Testing Center Regulations and Procedures

Providing uniform testing procedures and maintaining test security serves the interest of examinees and test score users. In order to provide fair and secure testing conditions for all examinees, the staff at each testing center will follow common procedures, and all examinees are required to comply with the regulations and procedures in the MCAT Essentials and the AAMC Candidate Rules Agreement.
