Application Fee

In general, all applications for admission must be accompanied by a $75 application fee or a waiver. Checks or money orders drawn on a U.S. bank should be made payable to the University of Michigan; we cannot accept cash. Applications submitted via LSAC may be paid for with a credit card. We are pleased, however, to waive the application fees of US military members and veterans, as well as of corps members and alumni of both City Year and Teach for America. Just send us an email to let us know your status, and we'll get back to you with a fee waiver code.

The University of Michigan Law School has also 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 or email a completed copy to the Admissions Office. Please note that it is necessary to complete a Fee Waiver Application for Michigan Law only if you have not received an LSAC Fee Waiver. If you have received an LSAC Fee Waiver and are applying via LSAC, LSAC’s system will automatically credit you.
