Application Fee Waivers

LSAC Fee Waivers

The Law School is happy to honor fee waivers granted by LSAC. If you have received a fee waiver from LSAC, the application fee should be automatically waived when you submit your application through LSAC. You do not need any additional confirmation or approval from the Law School.

Law School Fee Waivers

The Law School will also waive the application fee for the following individuals: (1) Teach for America participants and alumni applying as a 1L, (2) those currently serving active duty in the U.S. military, U.S. military veterans, and members of the U.S. Reserves and National Guard, (3) Peace Corps participants and alumni providing documentation confirming completion of the 27-month commitment, (4) AmeriCorps participants and alumni and (5) undergraduate students currently enrolled at the University of Chicago. If your fee is waived for any of the above reasons, please email admissions@law.uchicago.edu and request a fee waiver code. You will then receive a fee waiver code that you must use when you submit your application through LSAC. Please do not pay the application fee. We will not be able to issue refunds to applicants who pay the fee. Fee waiver requests are accepted starting mid-August when the application goes live until the application deadline of February 1st each year.

The Law School will also send out additional fee waivers to applicants based upon data from the Candidate Referral Service (CRS) and in conjunction with various recruiting events. The Law School is unable to consider individual fee waiver requests.
