LSAT test takers can cancel their scores in two ways:
On the day of the test, you may cancel your score by following the instructions provided on your answer sheet. You must follow the instructions completely. Incomplete or improper answer sheet score cancellations are not valid and will not be processed.
You will receive confirmation of your score cancellation after your answer sheet is processed. This could take two to three weeks after the day of the test.
The day after your test, you will be able to cancel your LSAT score on the LSAT Status page of your LSAC.org account. This option will only be available to you within six calendar days of the test. The deadline to cancel your score online will be 11:59 pm (ET) on the sixth day after your LSAT date.
If you choose to cancel your score on the deadline day, please do so during our business hours. If you have technical problems with canceling your score after business hours, we will not be able to extend the deadline.
Consequences of Canceling Your Score
- Your law school report will reflect that your score was canceled at your request; this advises law schools that you were exposed to test questions.
- You will not receive a score or a copy of your answer sheet.
- If you took a disclosed test, you will receive a copy of the test questions, as well as the credited responses for the scored sections.
- There are no refunds for canceled scores.
- Valid score cancellation requests completed on the day of the test or online are irreversible and cannot be rescinded.
- Once scores are released, they become a permanent part of your record and cannot be canceled for any reason.
Scores Canceled by LSAC
LSAC reserves the right to cancel or withhold test scores if, in its sole opinion, there is adequate reason to question their validity, or for other reasons.
Scores canceled by LSAC may fall into several categories:
- Scores may be canceled because of circumstances beyond your control, such as faulty test materials. In such cases, LSAC notifies law schools of the cancellation and arranges a retest at no charge on the next regularly scheduled test date.
- LSAC will investigate and reserves the right to cancel any test score if, in the opinion of LSAC, there is any question as to its validity. When the validity of a score is questioned by LSAC, LSAC notifies the test taker of the reasons for questioning the score and provides options appropriate to the specific circumstances.
- Test takers found in possession of or using a prohibited electronic device will be dismissed from the test center and their score will be canceled.
- Test takers observed reading or working in the wrong test section will be dismissed from the test center and their score will be canceled.
- Test takers working beyond the time limit in a test section will be dismissed from the test center and their score will be canceled.
