MAT: Miller Analogies Test

The Miller Analogies Test (computer-based version) is administered through the Continuing Education Testing Center on scheduled test days.


Due to the decline in the use and interest of the MAT over the years, Pearson Assessments will be retiring the MAT, MAT Practice Tests, and Study Guide at the end of November 2023.  The final administration will be given no later than November 15, 2023, at participating MAT Controlled Testing Centers. WCU will adminsiter its final MAT on October 11, 2023.

 Official Transcripts and Personal Score Reports will be available to examinees upon request at our website for the next 2 years, or until November 2025.
