All applications for admission must be accompanied by a $75 application fee. Checks or money orders drawn on a U.S. bank should be made payable to the University of Michigan; we cannot accept cash. Online applications may be paid for with a credit card.
Alternatively, the University of Michigan Law School has established a fund to cover the application fees of individuals who demonstrate financial need. Because we waive only a limited number of fees, we ask that you seriously consider your financial need for a fee waiver before you request one. To apply for a waiver, you may print our PDF fee waiver application, and mail us a completed copy. Failure to provide complete information will result in denial of a fee waiver request.
Please note that it is necessary to complete a Fee Waiver Application for Michigan Law only if (1) you have not received an LSAC Fee Waiver, or (2) you have received an LSAC Fee Waiver but are not applying through LSAC (that is, you are using our PDF application or applying via CollegeNet). If you have received an LSAC Fee Waiver and are applying via LSAC, LSAC’s system will automatically credit you.
