2016 PCAT Test Dates

Today marks the halfway point of the 2016/2017 testing cycle for the PCAT. The July and September PCAT dates are coming to an end; today is the last date to test before the end of October. If you’re testing today, good luck! If you’re planning to test in October or November, you’re in luck: registration for the October and November PCAT dates is now open!

There are two testing windows still open for registration for the 2016/2017 cycle. The dates and deadlines for those testing windows are as follows:

October/ November 2016

The October/ November PCAT testing window is from Monday, October 24 to Friday, November 4. If you’re not sure how to register for the exam, you can check out our post on how to register for the PCAT here.

Registration for these PCAT dates opens today, September 9th! The “Register and Schedule By” date is October 7th and the “Late Registration and Schedule By” date is October 12th for these PCAT dates. If you’re planning on taking the PCAT during this testing window, get yourself registered and scheduled as soon as possible. You don’t want to pay the extra late fees if you register after October 7th.

If you need to cancel your registration, you will need to do so before October 14th to receive a partial refund. If you’re not sure how to cancel your registration, you can check out our post about cancelling your PCAT here.

January 2017

Registration for the January PCAT dates has been open since March, so if you’re looking to register for the PCAT in this testing window, you can do so now. The January window is much shorter than the the October/ November testing window; there are only two January PCAT dates, which are Wednesday, January 4 and Thursday, January 5.

Although the testing window has been open for registration for quite some time now, the “Register and Schedule By” deadline is coming up. You will need to register for this window by November 4. The “Late Register and Schedule By” date is December 14th. If you want to cancel your January PCAT date and still receive a partial refund, you will need to do so by December 16.

This exam is an important part of your applications, so make sure that you’re prepared come test day. If you’re unsure about where you stand, consider getting outside help.
