The OLSAS Application service fee is $195 plus a law school application service fee of $90 for each law school selection. All fees are non-refundable. The amount paid must correctly reflect the number of law school selections made.
The law school application fee, collected by OLSAS but remitted directly to the institutions, assists the law schools in covering a portion of the costs associated with the admission assessment. Fees are determined by the number of institutions, not by the number of programs selected at each law school.
