Applications for first-year, foreign lawyer and transfer applicants are available only through the Law School Admission Council online electronic application service at www.lsac.org. Applications are sent directly to the law school from LSAC electronically and in printed form. There are separate applications for spring and fall transfers. First–year students and foreign lawyers are admitted in the fall only. Once you have completed your electronic application, you must add it to your “shopping cart” and release it before it will be transmitted to the law school.
The online application is compliant with Section 508 Standards for Web Accessibility
Applicants are required to pay a $65 application fee. This fee is not collected by LSAC. After you click the link below, you will be directed to a separate, secure site where you can pay your fee by credit card or e-check. Personal checks and money orders cannot be accepted.

When you complete the online transaction, you will receive a confirmation email. This is proof you have paid your fee. We will update files daily as we receive verification your fee has been paid.
Fee Waiver Requests
Fee waivers are granted for applicants with demonstrated financial need or applicants participating in specific public service programs. If you have received a fee waiver for the LSAT from LSAC, after you have submitted your application, please send a copy of the waiver either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or regular U.S. mail to the admissions office and your fee will be automatically waived. We do not get automatic notification that your LSAC fee was waived. You must take this additional step so we know they have given you a fee waiver.
Applicants currently participating in AmeriCorps, Teach for America, Peace Corps, Vista, City Year or other similar programs or members of the U.S. Armed Forces will automatically be granted a fee waiver. Please provide proof of your affiliation with any of these organizations to the Admissions Office (an appointment letter or pay stub, for example). If you have financial need and did not receive a fee waiver from Law Services, you may apply directly to the law school for an application fee waiver (see link to form below).
