Upcoming LSAT Deadlines

September 2023 LSAT: The registration deadline for the September LSAT, open to United States and Canada test takers, is Tuesday, July 25.

As a reminder, test takers have the option to register for any LSAT administration through June 2024.

Please note that, when registering, test takers will be asked to state their preference of whether to test at home or at a test center. Regardless of your choice, you will not make your final decision until after scheduling opens for the administration you’re registering for. For more information, please visit our website to view the testing dates and learn more about testing at a test center or testing remotely.

Scheduling for the August 2023 LSAT is Now Open!

Scheduling for the August 2023 LSAT began on Thursday, July 6 at 5 p.m. ET. All August 2023 LSAT test takers, regardless of whether testing remotely or in person, will use Prometric’s ProScheduler tool to schedule their test.

By this time, all August test takers should have received an email with detailed instructions to guide them through the scheduling process.

The August 2023 LSAT marks the first time most test takers will have the option of the taking the LSAT in the online, remotely proctored format or in person at a test center. Test takers were asked, at the time of registration, which modality of the LSAT they preferred. However, it is not until they schedule their test that a final decision is made.

LSAC has been working closely with Prometric, which will oversee both test center and remotely proctored LSAT administrations for the 2023-2024 testing cycle, to make scheduling as smooth as possible. However, due to the logistical challenges which delivering a test simultaneously over several time zones online and at a test center represent, it is essential that test takers are aware of the scheduling deadlines for each modality.

Scheduling for testing at a Prometric test center: For the August administration, test takers who choose the test center option will have time slots available for Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12. The test times will be determined by the available slots and the operating hours of the test center in which you wish to take your test. Each test center will have its available time slots listed in the Prometric ProScheduler tool.

Test takers who opt to use a test center will have until Thursday, July 13 at 11:59 p.m. (local time) to schedule their test. If they’re unable to schedule their test by this deadline, they can opt to take the August 2023 LSAT remotely or request a test date change (fees may apply).

Test takers who schedule an in-person test can change their minds and opt for a remote test, but they must reschedule their test through Prometric ProScheduler tool. No tests can be scheduled for in person after July 13.

Scheduling for the online, remotely proctored test: For the August administration, test takers who choose to take LSAT remotely will have testing times available on Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12 between 8 a.m. and 8:50 p.m. Eastern Time.

Test takers who opt for remote testing have until Tuesday, August 8 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time to schedule their test. If they’re unable to schedule their test by this deadline, they can opt to request a test date change (fees may apply) through their LSAC account.

To begin the scheduling process, test takers will need the eligibility number which was issued to them when they registered. The number was included in the email they received confirming their registration. However, the number is also available in their account.
