LSAT Registration

LSAT is held at published test centers throughout the world four times annually. If you live more than 100 miles from a published test center, then you can ask LSAC to permit you to write at a non-published center, providing you use a paper form, enclose the applicable fee, and use priority mail. Make your request as early as possible to allow the necessary administrative time to create the center and book a proctor. Consult the deadline for non-published test centers listed under the Test Dates and Deadlines section of the LSAT official Web site, at http://www.lsac.org. Obtain a paper registration package by calling 215.968.1001 or sending an e-mail to LSACINFO@LSAC.org.

In the United States and Canada, the LSAT is held three times on Saturdays and on one Monday in June. Your law school of choice will probably advise you to take your LSAT no later than the December preceding your fall semester. Candidates can complete LSAT registration by phone, online, fax or surface mail. It’s a good idea to complete your LSAT registration a minimum of six weeks before the test date. This will give you a better chance of getting your first choice of testing locations, and also guarantees you’ll avoid a late registration fee.

In the event that LSAC cannot grant your request, indicate in your registration packet if you would prefer a refund of your test fee, to go to an alternative test center on the same date, or to register at the same location for the next available test date.

After you complete your LSAT registration, your test booking cannot be cancelled and then rescheduled during the late registration period.

Candidates who observe a religious day of rest on Saturdays can request LSAC to set an alternative test administration date. Your request must be written on official synagogue, church, or other house of worship letterhead and signed by your religious leader to confirm your request is due to religious obligation. The official letter must accompany the rest of your LSAT registration materials. It becomes part of your permanent LSAC file. You cannot subsequently change to a Saturday test date, even if you are retesting in future. LSAC will automatically switch your registration to the next Saturday Sabbath observers session if you live within 100 miles of a published test site. If you do not accept the switch, then LSAC cancels your registration and issues a refund.
