How Do I Request a Transcript?

Submit a completed Transcript Request Form to the Registrar’s Office of each undergraduate and graduate institution of higher education that you have attended, and pay any transcript request fees that the institution requires.

The Transcript Request Form is available in your LSAC account only after you (1) sign up and pay for the Credential Assembly Service and (2) add the institutions that you have attended in your LSAC account by clicking Add Institutions on the Credentials page.

Your transcripts must be submitted to LSAC directly by your schools and should be accompanied by the Transcript Request Form. LSAC will not accept transcripts submitted directly by you, even if they are official copies.

Don’t wait until the last minute to request your transcripts. It can sometimes take 1-2 weeks for the schools providing a transcript to mail it, and another 2-5 days for it to be received by LSAC. Then it typically takes LSAC up to two weeks to process the transcript(s), so request transcripts from your schools at least four weeks before you plan to apply to law school.
