MAT Information

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT)

All applicants for the Counselor Education program at Central Michigan University are required to submit a recent (not more than five years old) Miller Analogies Test (MAT) score.  The MAT is available at college testing centers across the state.  There is a fee for this test and it may vary from test site to test site.

Like the GRE, the MAT is designed to measure scholastic aptitudes for graduate-level studies.  However, unlike the GRE, the MAT is a strictly verbal test.  The MAT is intended to measure your ability to recognize relationships between ideas, your fluency in the English language, and your general knowledge of literature, philosophy, history, science, mathematics, and fine arts.  It requires the student to discern in 60 minutes logical relationships for 120 varied analogy problems.

The CMU Computer Based Testing Center offers the MAT on an arranged basis. Contact their office at (989) 774-1092 for information and to make an appointment .
