Test Prep Course

Mackinac Hall

Admissions

The CLAS Advising Center coordinates a preparation course for students preparing for the MCAT, DAT, OAT and PCAT.  The ten week course is typically held on Thursdays during the winter semester from 6:00-9:00pm on the Allendale campus.

The opening night provides an overview of the course, entrance exams and professional school applications.  The following weeks consist of a review session of a subject covered on the entrance exams; subjects include the following and are taught by GVSU faculty who continue to receive very positive evaluations:

  • Biology
  • Math/Quantitative Analysis
  • Critical Analysis/Reasoning/Reading Comprehension
  • General Chemistry
  • Organic Chemistry 
  • Biochemistry
  • Sociology
  • DAT/Perceptual Ability Test (for pre-dental students)
  • Physics
  • Psychology

In past years, the course fee is $60 for DAT, PCAT, and OAT test takers; and $80 for MCAT test takers (the higher fee is due to additional sessions).  Course fees are subject to change, and scholarships may be available.
