The Law School Admission Test now has multiple options for applicants to fill in for their gender identification, according to The College Fix.

There are now 12 options for students to select and they can select as many as apply to their preference. The new options for gender identification include “agender, androgyne, demigender, gender queer or gender fluid, man, transgender man, non-transgender man, questioning or unsure, woman, transgender woman, non-transgender woman” and one last spot where applicants can fill in their own gender, according to lifezette.com.

Agender refers to those who see themselves as having no gender. Demigender refers to those who feel a partial connection to a particular gender identity. It is unclear when the LSAC made changes to the typical man/female options to include non-binary gender options.

The Law School Admissions Council offers an online portal with the gender options where applicants go to register for the test. Students are encouraged to answer questions about their sexual orientation to help the organization “improve services and programs for law school candidates.” The LSAC also has a video called “Being Transgender in Law School,” which features a number of interviews with LGBTQ students.
