JBU Offers MAT Testing on Campus

Siloam Springs, Ark. (February 28, 2007) — John Brown University is now offering the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) on its main campus in Siloam Springs, Ark. The MAT is a requirement for entrance into some graduate programs. Results from the MAT are designed to show a candidate’s analytical thinking, a skill that is vital for success in graduate school.

Individual computerized testing is available four times daily at JBU’s testing center and is open to graduate school candidates from other institutions. Testing times are 8 a.m., 10a.m., 1 p.m. or 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and reservations are required. The cost of the MAT is $45 payable by check (to John Brown University), cash, or credit card. Candidates may not take the exact same MAT test within a 12-month period, but may take a different version of the test any time after the initial testing.

Please allow two hours for the exam and paperwork processing. Candidates must present two forms of identification at the time of testing. The primary form of identification must be valid and contain the candidate’s photograph and signature. Acceptable forms of primary identification are: driver’s license, school identification card, government-issued identification card or passport. Secondary forms of accepted identification include: credit card, library card, or utility bill (as long as the name and address appear exactly the same as on the primary form of identification).

Test results can be sent to the institution of the candidate’s choice. The MAT test is accepted for JBU’s Master of Science in Leadership and Ethics (M.S.L.E.) and Master of Arts in Ministry (M.A.) programs.
