If you are an international, documented applicant looking for information related to visas, immigration etc., it is recommended that you review the information provided by Harvard’s International Office.
Undocumented applicants and those with DACA status are encouraged to review the information and resources listed on the Undocumented at Harvard site.
Harvard Law School requires that your foreign transcripts be submitted through the LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service.
If you completed any postsecondary work outside the US (including its territories) or Canada, you must use this service for the evaluation of your foreign transcripts. The one exception to this requirement is if you completed the foreign work through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a US or Canadian institution, and the grades and credits received is clearly indicated on your school transcript.
This service is included in the LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service subscription fee. A Foreign Credential Evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), which will be incorporated into your LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service report.
To use the JD CAS, log in to your online account and follow the instructions for registering for the service. Be sure to print out a Transcript Request Form for each institution and send it promptly to them. More time is usually required to receive foreign transcripts.
Questions about the JD Credential Assembly Service can be directed to LSAC at 215.968.1001, or LSACINFO@LSAC.org.
