For Pre-Med Students

AAMC Fee Assistance Program

Planning to take the MCAT or apply to medical school this year, but unsure if you can afford the related fees? The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) may be able to help through its Fee Assistance Program, which aims to assist those who, without financial assistance, would be unable to take the MCAT, apply to medical schools that use the AMCAS application and more. Fee assistance benefits are not retroactive, so it is best to submit an application as early as possible in the calendar year you intend to take the MCAT or apply to medical school.
