Sabbath Observers

How Do I Qualify?

If your religious observance does not permit you to take the LSAT on a Saturday, you may register to take the test on the designated alternate date for Sabbath observers, usually the following Monday.

Once you complete your registration for that alternate date, LSAC will place a hold on your file. We will release your admission ticket when we receive a signed letter from your cleric confirming the authenticity of your request. The letter may be submitted by mail or fax, or scanned and emailed to

Test Administration
PO BOX 2000-T
Newtown PA 18940

Fax: 215.968.1277

We must receive this letter by the administration’s registration deadline. Otherwise, your registration will be rescinded, your test fee will be refunded, and you will not be able to test on that date.

How Do I Register?

You may register for the Sabbath observers LSAT date through your account or by phone (215.968.1001) by the designated registration deadline. When you register online, you will see an option to view the available Sabbath observer LSAT dates.

What Happens Next?

Once we receive and process your Sabbath observance letter, we will lift the reporting hold from your file, and make your admission ticket available. (We will notify you through your online account.) Please allow three to five business days for us to complete the process.
