Registration Information

Please Note: For many graduate programs in the School of Education, the Miller Analogies Test is no longer required. Please check with the director of the specific program in which you are interested about this requirement.

There is a fee of $80 to take the Miller Analogies Test. All participants interested in taking the Miller Analogies Test must pay online then call (618) 650‑2295 to schedule an appointment. Please keep in mind the earliest appointment time we have available is 9 a.m. and the latest is 3 p.m. Monday – Friday. During the registration process, you will be asked to enter your Social Security Number.

Testing is permitted up to three times within a one-year period; however, if you are retesting within a year, you must present a retest ticket.

Bring No. 2 pencils and photo identification to the testing site. (You will not be able to test without proper identification.)

Arriving promptly at the testing site with the required materials is necessary for test administration. If you arrive after the start time, you will not be permitted to test.

There will be no refunds of registration or testing fees – no exceptions. If you need to reschedule your test session, you must register to take the test on another date and pay the administration/service fee again.
