Graduate testing is known to be an expensive part of the graduate application process. Compared to the other popular exams (GRE, GMAT, etc.) the Miller Analogies cost is $100-$200 less. However, there is no “set” price for the MAT, and the actual cost does vary slightly depending on the test center you go to. For most students, the Miller Analogies will cost anywhere from $70-$100. I have seen testing centers that charge more or less than this, but most charge something within this range.
To get the best price, I recommend going to the official Pearson test center page. You can go to the individual websites for centers close to you and compare the prices. This should allow you to find the cheapest option. If the first center you look at charges over $100.00, I would definitely suggest looking for other nearby centers.
Test Centers = School List?
You can also use the test center page as a rough list of schools that have programs that accept the MAT. As I’ve mentioned before, you should not choose the school you go to based on which exams they accept. Your focus should be on choosing the best program for your needs. But this remains a question many students wonder about. If, for some reason, you really needed to get an idea of which schools accepted the MAT, the test center page could get you started. Again, it is a “rough” list. It is not necessarily exhaustive, and just because a school appears on the list, it does not guarantee that the school accepts the exam. You will still need to check with your program specifically.
Lastly, it is worth noting that study materials for the Miller Analogies test cost less than those of other exams; the two most common prep materials (Kaplan and Barron’s) can be bought for $15.00 or less. All things considered, the MAT is about as low cost as you’ll find among graduate exams.
