Frequently Asked Questions About the Process for Requesting Accommodation(s) on the LSAT

What must I submit in order for my request for accommodation to be reviewed?

  • See Documentation Requirements
  • Put your name and LSAC account number on each page of documentation that you submit for review (both front and back if the page is two-sided). This includes faxes and emails.

LSAC does not return or provide copies of documentation. You should keep copies of all documents submitted, especially if they are originals. You should also retain copies of any facsimile transmission reports.

Do I have to submit a new request for accommodations if I previously was granted accommodations on a prior administration of the LSAT?

  • Yes, you must submit a new request for each administration of the LSAT on which you seek accommodations. A new and updated Candidate Form must be provided, even if you are requesting the same accommodations you were approved to receive on an earlier administration of the test.

When is the deadline for submitting documentation for an accommodation request?

  • Beginning with the February 2018 administration of the test, there is only one registration deadline for registering to take the LSAT. LSAC is no longer offering a “late registration” option.
  • Persons with disabilities seeking testing accommodations must submit their request for testing accommodations together with all supporting documentation by the stated registration deadline to be considered for testing accommodations. The stated registration deadline is also the deadline for LSAC to receive any supplemental documentation that may be requested by LSAC or submitted by the candidate after the receipt of the original request. Barring unforeseen circumstances, LSAC will respond to each request for testing accommodations within 14 business days of its receipt. If a request is received within two weeks of the deadline, you may not have the opportunity to supplement your file if, after review of your request, we determine that additional information is needed to make a decision.
  • There are no exceptions to this deadline.
  • Please be advised that for deadline purposes, delivery to LSAC’s post office box (PO Box 8512) at the Newtown, Pennsylvania post office does not constitute receipt by LSAC. Especially near the deadline, to ensure timely receipt by LSAC, you should consider the use of a courier service and should direct delivery to LSAC’s offices at LSAC Accommodated Testing, 662 Penn Street, Newtown PA 18940-0995.
  • Documentation that is emailed or sent via facsimile must be received in LSAC’s office by 11:59 pm (ET) on the deadline day associated with your LSAT registration. Documentation sent via email or fax will not be processed if it is missing page(s), is not legible, or is not received on time.

Will LSAC confirm receipt of my documentation?

  • Information on the status of your accommodation request will be posted on your LSAC.org account under LSAT Status. In most cases, confirmation of receipt of documentation will be noted on your account approximately 5 business days after LSAC receives your documentation.
  • If you submit your documentation by email, the Accommodated Testing email system automatically confirms receipt of emails.

How long will it take for LSAC to respond to my request for accommodation or to inquiries about my request?

  • Barring unforeseen circumstances, LSAC will respond to your request and any inquiries within 14 business days of receipt.

How do I request accommodations for multiple test administrations?

  • You must make a separate accommodation request for each administration of the LSAT. Remember that you must first register for the test before submitting an accommodation request.

If there is a problem with my documentation, will you contact my evaluator?

  • No, we will notify YOU if there is a problem with your documentation. It is advisable to check your online account regularly while your request for accommodation is pending. LSAC will not contact your evaluator.

How are accommodated scores reported to law schools?

  • Scores earned with testing accommodations, including the testing accommodation of extended time, are reported in the same manner as nonaccommodated scores.

How do I contact LSAC?

  • Email: accom@LSAC.org; place name and LSAC account number in the subject line.
  • Phone: 215.968.1001
  • Fax: 215.504.1420; documentation received via facsimile must be legible.
  • US Mail: LSAC Accommodated Testing, PO Box 8512, Newtown PA 18940-8512
  • Courier Service: LSAC Accommodated Testing, 662 Penn Street, Newtown PA 18940-0995
