The photo that you upload through your LSAC.org account must meet the following requirements for you to be admitted to the test center:
- The photo must be a recent and recognizable photo of only you, facing the camera with only your head and shoulders in the picture.
- On test day, the test center supervisor must be able to identify you in person when comparing you to your photo.
- Your facial features must be clearly visible with no shadows or obstructions.
- The background in the photo should be plain and should not obscure your identity.
- The uploaded photo must be a different photo than the one on the government-issued ID that you present at the test center. (Do not scan or photograph that ID photo for uploading onto your admission ticket.)
- The photo must completely fill the 2”x2” (195px x 195px) photo display box.
LSAC will retain the photo only as long as needed to assure the authenticity of test scores and to protect the integrity of the testing process.
Note: When you upload your photo, you will be able to use our photo crop-and-rotate tool.

- Test center supervisors are directed to deny admission to anyone who does not present both an admission ticket bearing an acceptable photo and acceptable identification. If you are denied admission, you will not be eligible for a refund.
