Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)

Fee Assistance program (FAP)

“The AAMC believes that the cost of applying to medical school should not be a financial barrier to those interested in becoming physicians. To help defray some of the costs, the AAMC provides financial assistance to eligible MCAT examinees and AMCAS applicants.

Fee Assistance Benefits:

  • Reduction in the MCAT registration and rescheduling fees
  • AMCAS application fee waiver (visit for current benefit)
  • Complimentary access to official MCAT preparation products, including:
    • The Official Guide to the MCAT Exam (MCAT2015), Fourth Edition
    • Full-length practice exams
    • Other practice materials
  • Complimentary access to the Medical School Admission Requirements (MSAR) website
  • Eligibility for a scholarship toward an updated psycho-educational or medical evaluation if required to support an MCAT accommodations application

In addition, most AMCAS-participating medical schools waive their supplemental application fees for applicants who have been granted fee assistance by the AAMC.”- AAMC
