Law School Admission Test (LSAT): Paper-based

Testing Center Update 

St. Cloud State University is in the process of relocating our testing center and anticipate the move to be completed by Summer 2021.  We are preparing a safe testing environment that complies with current COVID-19 protocols.

Our new site is located a few blocks from SCSU’ s main campus, is easily accessible and has ample free parking. Additional details will be posted here in the coming weeks.

Testing companies are not currently scheduling exams at our site. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience but please know testing services will be resumed as soon as possible.

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all ABA-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants. The test is administered four times a year.

Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier is often advised.

The fee for the LSAT is $165.

You can only register for a paper-based LSAT directly through the testing company in the following ways:
