Getting Ready for October Registration 

  1. Be sure to fill out the first five tabs in the MCAT Registration System before opening day (the system will be open from October 7 at noon ET through October 24 at 10:00 a.m. ET).
  2. Watch a brief video on the MCAT Registration System to learn more. 
  3. Review the top 10 tips for registration. 

Reminder: There is no advantage to logging into the registration system more than 10 minutes before scheduling begins. Beginning at noon ET, anyone who has logged in by 11:50 a.m. ET is randomly assigned a place in line to register. If you log in after 11:50 a.m. ET, you are placed at the end of the line. Watch a brief video to learn how the Waiting Room works.

If you're not ready to schedule your exam yet, the MCAT Registration System will remain open for scheduling for available dates after October 26.
