Did you know?

If you are an FGCU student you must register with the Office of Adaptive Services to request disability-related accommodations.

Additional documentation may be required if your documentation is not sufficient or you request changes to accommodations initially requested. To process your request for an accommodation, Pearson must notify the Office of Testing and Assessment Services of the additional information at least six weeks before the desired examination date.

If you receive special accommodations for a MAT administration and then wish to retake the MAT with the same accommodations within one year, you will need to submit a new Accommodations Request Form but will not need to provide the supporting documentation a second time. However, you must contact MAT Customer Relations to confirm that your original documentation is still current and on file.


About the Test

Additional Information


Performance on the MAT is designed to reflect candidates’ analytical thinking, an ability that is critical for success in both graduate school and professional life.

Through analogies with content from various academic subjects, MAT scores help graduate schools identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond mere memorizing and repeating information.

The analytical skills measured by the MAT are key to success in graduate school and are highly valued by graduate programs. For more than 50 years, the MAT has proven to be a reliable and valid test for assessing candidates for graduate school. Predictive validity studies conducted by Pearson and by independent researchers have shown positive correlations between MAT scores and subsequent success in graduate programs.

You may find more information on the MAT Candidate Information Booklet.
