The Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) waives its fees for applicants who are absolutely unable to pay for the LSAT and other essential applicant services. See LSAC Fee Waiver.
We will automatically waive the application fee if you have received an LSAC Fee Waiver.
You must receive the LSAC fee waiver before you transmit the electronic application through LSAC. We cannot refund application fees you have already paid.
We will waive the application fee for members of the following groups:
- U.S. military veterans and service members (Participation in a foreign country's military does not qualify an applicant for a fee waiver.);
- Peace Corps members and alumni;
- AmeriCorps members and alumni;
- City Year members and alumni;
- Teach For America corps members and alumni;
- Truman Scholars;
- Persons who have served or are currently serving under-served communities through another established public service organization or program;
- Persons who have engaged or are currently engaged in activities and/or employment manifesting a strong commitment to social justice, the public interest, and service to legally and economically disadvantaged communities.
You must receive this service recognition fee waiver before you transmit the electronic application through LSAC. We cannot refund application fees you have already paid.
To apply for a service recognition fee waiver, please see Service Recognition Fee Waiver Form.
We do not grant merit-based fee waivers or fee-waivers based on your LSAT score or GPA.
