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.
LSAC must receive your written score cancellation request within six calendar days of the test. The Score Cancellation form (PDF) will become available on this page the night before the test. (If you are unable to view or print the form, visit LSAT FAQs.)
Submit your signed LSAT Score Cancellation form to LSAC in one of the following ways:
- Scan and email: ScoreCancel@LSAC.org
- Fax: 215.968.1277
- Overnight letter or expedited mail: Law School Admission Council, Score Cancellation, 662 Penn Street, PO BOX 2000-T, Newtown PA 18940-0995
Requests received after the deadline are not valid and will not be processed. No other form of score cancellation request—such as mailgram, voice mail, or telegram—will be accepted as all score cancellation requests must include the test taker's signature.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your score cancellation request is received and properly processed by LSAC. After you submit your request, LSAC will email you a confirmation of your score cancellation within four calendar days. If you do not receive this email, verify that your cancellation request was processed in one of two ways:
- Visit the LSAT Status section of your LSAC.org account.
- Call LSAC at 215.968.1001. (Please allow at least four days for your request to be processed before you call.)
If your score cancellation request was not received by the deadline or has not been processed, you may submit proof that you sent, and LSAC received, your request by the deadline. This proof must be received by LSAC within 14 calendar days of the test. Documentation received after this deadline will not be accepted.
It is your responsibility to keep both a photocopy of your score cancellation request and proof that LSAC received your request before 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 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.
