International LSAT Test Dates 2024
For international students planning to take the LSAT, specific test dates are available as well. It’s crucial to ensure you select the right test date based on your location and needs.
International test dates may vary from those in the United States and Canada, so make sure to check the LSAC website for the most up-to-date information.
Scheduling your LSAT test is a critical step in the process. To test in person at a test center, you must schedule your test within 7 days of scheduling opening. If you’re unable to do so, you can request a test date change (fees will apply) through your LSAC online account. Failure to schedule or request a test date change will result in automatic withdrawal of your LSAT registration without a refund.
For those opting for remote testing, you must schedule your test at least 3 days before testing begins for your administration. Similar to in-person testing, if you can’t meet this deadline, you can request a test date change (fees will apply) through your LSAC online account. Again, failure to schedule or request a test date change will result in automatic withdrawal of your LSAT registration without a refund.
Before scheduling a remote test, ensure your testing space and equipment meet the remote-testing requirements outlined on the LSAC website.
