Test Date Changes

Before your current LSAT administration’s Test Date Change deadline has passed, you may request to take the LSAT on a different date within the current testing year. Beginning with the 2021-2022 testing year, LSAT testing years will run from July through June. The June 2021 LSAT-Flex is being included in the 2020-2021 testing year.

You can request a test date change through the LSAT Status page of your LSAC online account.

Policy for 2021 LSAT-Flex Administrations

Due to the disruptions and uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing January-June 2021 LSAT-Flex takers a few options for test date changes:

  • Up to two weeks before your LSAT-Flex administration begins, you will have the option to request a test date change free of charge. If you would prefer, also free of charge, you can instead withdraw your registration to receive a coupon that can be used toward a future LSAT during the current testing year (or the next testing year, if you are registered for the June 2021 test).
  • Less than two weeks before your LSAT-Flex administration begins, you can request a test date change for $125. The deadline to make your request is 11:59 p.m. (ET) on the night before the first day of testing for your LSAT-Flex administration.

Please review the deadlines listed for each administration for exact dates.

Policy for 2021-2022 LSAT Administrations

  • Through your administration’s registration deadline, you will have the option to request a test date change free of charge.

  • Up to 10 days after your administration’s registration deadline, you can request a test date change for $125.

  • Eleven (11) days after your administration’s registration deadline through the day before testing begins, you can request a test date change for $200. The deadline to make your request is 11:59 p.m. (ET) on the night before the first day of testing for your LSAT administration.

Please review the deadlines listed for each administration for exact dates.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I’m registered for the final exam in a testing year?

If you’re registered for the final exam of a testing year (e.g., the June 2021 LSAT) and the exam’s Test Date Change deadline has not yet passed, you may change your test date to the first exam of the following testing year. The first exam of the 2021-2022 testing year will be administered in August.

If registration for the first exam of the following testing year is not yet available, you can request a coupon, which you will be able to use once registration opens. This coupon will only be good for the first test of the following testing year.

My administration’s Test Date Change deadline has passed. What should I do?

If you’re registered to take the June 2021 LSAT-Flex, there is no further action you need to take. “Absentee” notations are not recorded for LSAT-Flex takers. However, if you’ve already scheduled a testing time with ProctorU, please cancel your scheduled time slot so that it will be available to other test takers. (Please note: If you register for another LSAT test date, you will be required to pay the full LSAT registration fee.)

If you’re registered to take the LSAT (i.e., August 2021-June 2022), please withdraw your registration through the LSAT Status page of your LSAC online account by 11:59 p.m. (ET), the day before you are scheduled to test. Withdrawing your registration will prevent an absentee notation from appearing on your LSAC file. (Please note: You will not receive a refund. If you register for another test date, you will be required to pay the full LSAT registration fee.) If you did not schedule a testing time through ProctorU by your administration’s scheduling deadline, your registration will be automatically withdrawn, without a refund.
