Unaccredited school undergrad

Postby Quc » Thu Oct 25, 2018 3:18 pm

Hey curious if anyone knows the answer.

I went to a small research institution that was completely not accreddited in any form when I was there but it was before I received my first undergrad (from a different institution-obviously without any credits from the first) .
Am I supposed to be reporting that to LSAC?

TIA

You must disclose (and submit transcripts from) any post-high school institutions where you completed coursework, irrespective of accreditation status or whether the courses you completed were counted toward any degree. Your grades from all classes taken prior to the award of your Bachelor's degree will be included in your LSAC GPA, even if they were not included in your GPA by the college that awarded your degree.

Figured as much.
Thanks.
Just trying to be sure as it will be a pain to get the transcripts from them.

If it's a pain it will be on you. If it's impossible (so long as you have a first degree from another school) LSAC's transcripts page suggests they can work with that based on a declaration from you.

I'd work diligently to get the transcript and if it looks like it might not be possible reach out to LSAC for guidance.
