Please note that you will need your username information in order to reset your password.

Directions on completing the reset will be sent to your inbox. This email can only be sent to the email address on file with your account.

A general error message can indicate one of a number of issues. Please verify that you are using a web browser supported by LSAC.org. Other web browsers may not meet the security requirements of LSAC.org.

Do not leave any page in your LSAC.org account unattended or inactive (including orders, test or service registrations, and electronic applications). Your information is stored on a secure server, and the connection to that server may be timed out after a time limit set by your Internet service provider. If your connection times out, any information you have entered will be lost.

If you are using a wireless Internet connection, you may receive errors when moving between certain sections of LSAC.org. This is caused by our website being unable to determine if the connection to your computer meets the required level of security. Please try physically connecting your computer to your Internet connection, then try again.

LSAC.org features security technology that ensures your personal information remains encrypted as it is transported across the Internet. The information you enter is protected by a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) that encrypts all communications between LSAC.org and your computer.

If you received the error notice while registering for the Credential Assembly Service, the most likely cause is that you attempted to enter the same school more than once. A school cannot be listed multiple times on the registration form; instead, enter the complete time span of your attendance at the school in one entry, and the information will be updated in your account when LSAC receives your transcripts.

If you receive this error notice at another time, it is usually caused by a problem with the secure connection between your computer and your LSAC.org account. Please verify that you are using a web browser supported by LSAC.org. Other web browsers may not meet the security requirements of LSAC.org.

Pop-Up Windows

LSAC.org uses pop-up windows for communicating pertinent information, displaying help topics, and presenting other necessary components. Please disable any third-party pop-up blocking software and check that your browser settings allow pop-ups.

  • Internet Explorer: Go to Tools/Internet Options/Privacy.
  • Firefox: Go to Tools/Options/Content.
  • Safari: Go to Safari/Preferences/Security.

Scripting

Please make sure JavaScript is enabled in your browser.

  • Internet Explorer: Go to Tools/Internet Options/Security-Internet/Custom Level.

Our secure technology ensures that your personal information remains encrypted as it is transported across the Internet.

Settings and Preferences

You can set individual interface preferences for your account. After logging in to your LSAC.org account, please go to My Account/Account Settings/Preferences. Here, you can select whether you use a screen reader or wish to be prompted for surveys.

Please make sure you have Adobe Reader 7 or later installed on your computer. If you have an earlier version of Reader, you will need to uninstall it, then download and install a later version. Reader is available free from www.adobe.com. Sometimes your current version can become corrupt; uninstall and reinstall Adobe Reader.

LSAT Admission Tickets are displayed in an Adobe Reader pop-up window. If you click the link to your ticket and no window appears, it is being blocked by pop-up blocker software on your computer. Be sure that you have disabled all pop-up blockers, Internet security suites, personal firewalls, or other software that may modify, block, filter, or reroute your connection. LSAC cannot assist you with any software provided by a third party.

Windows users—If you have the required version of Adobe Reader installed and your LSAT Admission Ticket opens in a blank window, follow Adobe’s instructions for all the common Internet browsers.

Some users may also need to make an additional change to their Internet Options. Exit all open programs; then, from your computer’s Control Panel, open Internet Options and click the Advanced tab. Scroll down the list of settings to the Security section and clear the Do not save encrypted pages to disk checkbox. Click OK and try to open your admission ticket.

Firefox and Safari have their own PDF viewers; only Adobe Reader can be used to view these documents.

Mac OS X users—The default application to view PDFs in Safari is “Preview.” Some LSAC documents do not display correctly in Preview and must be viewed using Adobe Reader. Opening the admission ticket in Preview will also place a copy of the file on your desktop as “Example.pdf.” Open Adobe Reader, click File, then Open. Browse to your desktop and select the downloaded copy of the ticket. This should open the admission ticket properly and allow you to view and print your ticket.

  • Internet Explorer: Go to the Tools menu, select Internet options, then click the General tab (if it is not already selected for you). In the Browsing History section, click Delete. Make sure the Temporary Internet Files and Cookies boxes are checked, then click Delete at the bottom. If you have never cleared your cache and cookies before, this may take a few minutes.
