We require a nonrefundable application fee of $85.00, payable to Harvard Law School.
If you are applying to HLS with an LSAT score and if payment of the application fee would pose a financial hardship, we recommend that you first apply for a fee waiver through the Law School Admission Council. Fee waivers from LSAC cover multiple application fees and some LSAC services, and an LSAC fee waiver may be the best way for you to reduce application related expenses. If LSAC has granted you a LSAT/LSAC Credential Assembly Service Fee waiver and you apply to HLS, your application fee will be waived. Please visit the LSAC site for more information on the LSAC fee waiver process.
If you are applying to HLS with a GRE score or are interested in requesting an application fee waiver directly from HLS, you may complete the HLS Fee Waiver Request Form. The HLS Fee Waiver Request Form typically opens in early September, and closes on February 1 of each admissions cycle. We cannot accommodate any fee waiver requests made prior to or after those dates.
HLS application fees are waived by HLS on the basis of financial need as demonstrated by information on the HLS form. No application for admission will be considered before the application fee has been paid or a fee waiver has been granted.
