LSAT Admission Ticket Photo Requirements

LSAC policy requires that all LSAT test takers glue or tape to their admission ticket a passport-type photograph that must

  • be recent (taken within the last six months)
  • show only your face and shoulders
  • be clear enough that there is no doubt about your identity
  • be no larger than 2 x 2 inches (5 x 5 cm) and no smaller than 1 x 1 inch (3 x 3 cm)
  • show you as you look on the day of the test (e.g., with or without a beard)
  • be different than the photo displayed on your government-issued ID

The photograph will be retained by LSAC only as long as needed to assure the authenticity of test scores and to protect the integrity of the testing process.

Beginning with the June 2016 LSAT: To be eligible to take the LSAT, you will be required to have with you at the test center the printout of your admission ticket that includes the photo that you uploaded through your LSAC online account. Admission tickets that do not display the required uploaded photo will not be accepted on test day.

LSAC policy requires that all LSAT test takers present an admission ticket on test day that displays an acceptable photo. The acceptable photo will be uploaded through your LSAC online account, during the registration process. The photo must

  • be recent (taken within the last six months)
  • show only your face and shoulders
  • be clear enough that there is no doubt about your identity
  • be the photo that you uploaded through your online LSAC account
  • show you as you look on the day of the test (e.g., with or without a beard)
  • be different than the photo displayed on your government-issued ID

The acceptable photo will be retained by LSAC only as long as needed to assure the authenticity of test scores and to protect the integrity of the testing process.
