Future Students

From March 27 and April 4, 2020 MCAT exam administrations have been canceled globally. You will receive a cancellation email if you have not already. Flexible rescheduling has been extended for exams taking place through the end of May. For more details regarding impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) on 2020 testing, please visit the MCAT Coronavirus Page.  

We understand that this is a constantly evolving situation. Students are welcome to set up an appointment with one of the Pre-med advisors if you have any concerns or questions. Advising appointments are currently being administered via Zoom (distance).
