LSAT/CAS Registration

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). To open an LSAC account, visit its website.

Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

The LSAT is offered four times each year (September/October, December, February, and June) at more than 100 examination centers around the world. 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 2014 should take the LSAT no later than December 2013. Applicants who submit scores from the February 2014 test may hinder their chances of admission because their applications will not be completed until late in our cycle. During the 2013–14 admissions season, applicants must submit a score from the June 2008 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.

Transcripts
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 undergraduate institutions to CAS. 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, 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.
