LSAT Registration Information

Instructor: Laura Melega
Achieving success on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) can help earn you admission into your law school of choice. Here you'll learn about how to register for the test, how much it will cost you and more.

Registering for the LSAT

You have multiple options for how you can register for the LSAT. Online registration, the easiest of your choices, can be completed on the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) website. You can also register by phone by calling LSAC. If you prefer mail-in registration, that's another one of the options. To do that, simply call or e-mail LSAC to request the appropriate packet.

Registration Deadlines

Typically, the registration deadline when testing at a published testing center is about a month out from the exam date. If the closest test center is more than 100 miles away, you may submit a request to test at a nonpublished test center. This request usually needs to be submitted roughly two months from the test.

LSAT Availability

The LSAT is offered around the world during a total of four months out of the year. These months are February, June, either September or October, and December. The exam will fall on a Saturday in all of these months but June. However, you may get a non-Saturday date for religious purposes, as long as you can get a letter from your rabbi or minister for verification.

Exam fee$175
Late registration fee$90
Changing Test Center Location$90
