Payment Information

The MCAT Registration System accepts American Express, 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 payment submission. The process cannot be reversed once it has begun, and 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 to process your registration. Otherwise, the AAMC may cancel your registration, withhold all scores (even scores from previous years), and not allow future registration and other services until the payment is reconciled. 

Examinees may be required to pay applicable sales tax, value-added tax, Goods and Services Tax, or similar taxes required by law in the country or locality in which they are testing. If taxes are applicable, they will be collected at the time of scheduling. For up-to-date information, please review Pearson VUE’s Tax FAQs.

* As of July 1, 2021, the Canadian government collects Goods and Services Tax (GST) and harmonized tax (HST) on goods and services delivered by non-resident business to consumers in Canada, which includes MCAT registration fees. You can read more about these tax changes on Pearson VUE’s website

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 select your test date and location. See the Fee Assistance Program website for complete information, including eligibility, the application process, and associated deadlines.

The AAMC and the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) are continuing to pilot a fee assistance program for Canadian examinees for the 2023 testing year. Fee Assistance Program benefits for Canadian awardees also include access to all online AAMC MCAT Official Prep products and reduced MCAT registration fee. Learn more about the AAMC Fee Assistance Program for Canadian Examinees. For questions regarding the application, evaluation, or qualification process, visit the AFMC website.
