Miller Analogies Test

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level mental ability test requiring the solution of problems stated as analogies. There are several equivalent forms of the MAT administered in both computer-based and paper-and-pencil versions.

The MAT consists of 120 partial analogies that are to be completed in 60 minutes. The MAT involves general academic knowledge and analytical skills acquired over years of study and learning. Pearson has study materials available on their website.

Please contact the Admissions Office or the Department in which you plan to study regarding minimum scores and testing requirements for admission to the University you plan to attend.

Please register through our online registration system to select your test date and time.

The test and test administration fee (combined when you register for an appointment on our site) is payable via AMEX, Visa, Discover or MasterCard credit or debit card. The testing fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

  • Bring an appropriate official photo ID (valid state-issued ID, military ID or passport)
