Credential Assembly Service

CAS is an online service provided by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). CAS is the single place where your application documents are gathered (transcripts, letters of recommendation, and any other application materials). LSAC combines your application documents with your LSAT score and forwards a full report to all the schools you apply to.

Most American Bar Association-approved law schools require that JD applicants use CAS.

The CAS fee is $195

Your CAS subscription remains active for 5 years and includes transcript summarization, letter of recommendation processing, electronic application processing for all ABA-approved law schools, and creation of your law school report (each report costs $45; you need to purchase a law school report for each school you are applying to).

It is recommended that you sign up for CAS at least four to six weeks before your first law school application deadline!

Admission Index - Some law schools use a formula to combine an LSAT score and Undergraduate GPA (UGPA) into a single index number. A list of mathematical formulas enabling you to calculate your admission index for each law school is available under “Related Information” on the “Transcripts” page of your LSAC.org account. Note that not all law schools use index formulas.

If you are unable to pay the fee for the CAS, you may request a fee waiver. Please visit this link to apply for the LSAT/CAS fee waiver.
