LSAT Admission Ticket Photo Requirement

LSAC policy requires all candidates taking the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) to present acceptable identification. In addition, all candidates must attach to their admission ticket a recent passport-type photograph (taken within the last six months) showing only the face and shoulders.

  • The photograph must be clear enough so there is no doubt about your identity.
  • It must be no larger than 2 x 2 inches (5 x 5 cm) and no smaller than 1 x 1 inch (3 x 3 cm).
  • Your face in the photograph must show you as you look on the day of the test (for example, with or without a beard) and must be a different photograph of you than the one displayed on your government-issued ID. You will not be admitted if the photo attached to your admission ticket is the same as the photo on your ID.

An example of an ACCEPTABLE photograph:

IMPORTANT: Test supervisors are directed to deny admission to anyone who does not present an acceptable photograph.

Examples of UNACCEPTABLE photographs:

Head Too Small
Head Too Big

More than One Subject in Photo

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.

IMPORTANT: If you do not both present an acceptable form of photo identification AND attach a separate required photograph to your admission ticket, you will be denied entrance to the testing room.
