LSAC Notice: Fee Waiver Process Change

Winnie Tsao – April 4th, 2017

LSAC established its fee waiver program in 1968 to ensure that no one is denied access to law school because of the inability to pay for the LSAT and other essential applicant services. The LSAC process for granting fee waivers has been revised and streamlined over time. Today, a US law school candidate can easily apply for a fee waiver online. 

For the past 10 years, LSAC has granted an average of $2.5 million each year in fee waivers. LSAC fee waivers are unique among testing organizations because fees are waived for all essential services, not just the test.
