LSAT | Credential Assembly Service | Transcripts | Foreign Transcripts
Law School applicants must register for and take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), administered by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), and register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS).
Law School Admission Test (LSAT)
The LSAT is currently offered four times each year (September/October, December, February, and June) at more than 100 examination centers around the world. (Beginning in 2018, six tests will be offered per year.) We strongly recommend that applicants take the test by December of the calendar year prior to the year in which admission is sought. For example, applicants to Michigan's entering class of 2018 should ideally take the LSAT no later than December 2017. Applicants who submit scores from the February 2018 test may hinder their chances of admission because their applications will not be completed until late in our cycle. During the 2017–2018 admissions season, applicants must submit a score from the June 2012 test or later.
Registration with Credential Assembly Service (CAS)
CAS registration directs LSAC to compile a number of LSAC Law School Reports to be sent, upon request, to the law schools to which you apply. Law School Reports include an undergraduate academic summary, all LSAT scores and writing samples, and copies of all transcripts submitted to CAS. Applicants who are reapplying to the University of Michigan Law School must be registered with CAS even if they do not intend to retake the LSAT.
Applicants must submit transcripts to CAS from every undergraduate college or university they have attended. These transcripts must be requested by the applicant and sent directly from all US and Canadian undergraduate institutions to LSAC, Box 2000-M, 662 Penn Street, Newtown, PA 18940-0993. CAS will summarize the transcripts and send a summary report, as well as copies of all transcripts, to each law school to which application is made. For international undergraduate work, transcripts from international institutions should be mailed to LSAC, Box 8502, 662 Penn Street, Newtown, PA 18940- 8502. A Foreign Credential Evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), and will be incorporated into your Law School Report. Please be aware that there can be significant delays in processing international transcript requests.
If you completed international work through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a U.S. or Canadian institution, and the credits for that work are clearly indicated as such on the home campus transcript, you do not need to provide copies of the international transcript.
Applicants who have undertaken graduate work must provide official graduate school transcripts. These transcripts must also be sent directly from the graduate institution to CAS.
