Miller Analogies Test Registration
For the health and safety of Fordham students and staff, the University is only offering the MAT to current students. You must have both a Fordham ID number and email to sign up for one of the listed test dates. Once your registration is received, you will be sent the room number and safety precautions to be followed in order to take the MAT. You must also show your Fordham ID upon entering the Lincoln Center or Westchester campus to take the test.
The New York State Education Transformation Act of 2015 requires that all teacher education and educational leadership applicants submit standardized test scores with their applications. The Fordham University Lincoln Center and Westchester campuses are authorized testing sites for the Miller Analogies Test (MAT).

What to Bring
On the day of testing, you must have the following or you will not be able to take the MAT and your test fee will not be refunded.
Two Forms of Identification
You must present two valid (i.e., unexpired) forms of identification (ID). Your primary form of ID must be government-issued and contain both your photograph and your signature. The second form of ID is not required to have your photograph or signature. Read the Candidate Information Booklet for examples of acceptable primary and secondary IDs.
Any candidate providing false identification or misrepresenting his or her identity at any time will be dismissed from the testing room and have his or her MAT scores canceled. Pearson may consider further legal action in such cases.
COVID-19 Safety Precautions
You must wear a mask at all times upon entering the campus and in the test room. Fordham will provide sanitizing wipes for your computer station, one to use prior to taking the test and one to use after taking the test. Seating for the test will be limited due to COVID 19.
You may bring a piece of paper listing codes for all schools that should receive your MAT score report. Please bring this list of codes, as the testing center may not have the list of codes on-site. Download the Candidate Information Booklet for more information about specifying score recipients.
Please note that test center staff will inspect any paper you bring into the testing room, so be sure to only include the school codes on that paper; otherwise, your scores may be invalidated. A Proctor will collect your piece of paper with recipient school codes once you have completed the demographics section. Download the list of school codes.
Testing Accommodations for People with Disabilities
Please contact the Fordham MAT administrator at either the Lincoln Center or Westchester campus several weeks before your test date to discuss specific accommodations.
Refer to the MAT's Disability Accommodations webpage to access a printable Accommodations Request Form. If you have any questions about requesting an accommodation after reviewing the MAT website, email or call MAT Customer Relations (see "MAT Customer Relations"). Download the Candidate Information Booklet for more details on the testing accommodations process.
