JD Refunds

Because LSAC incurs processing costs in our registration process, Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and Credential Assembly Service (CAS) fees are only partially refundable, regardless of whether you actually take the LSAT or use CAS. Unfortunately, because our candidate traffic is so high, we cannot stop registrations from being processed once they are submitted.

All receipt deadlines are by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET).

 

Request an LSAT Partial Refund

We must receive your LSAT refund request by your test administration’s refund request deadline. If the deadline has passed, you may still withdraw your registration to prevent the recording of an absentee notation on your file.

This is important. LSAT Refund Request Forms that are incomplete or missing a signature will not be processed, and the deadline will not be extended for those incomplete requests.

    LSAT registration fees are partially refundable if:

    • you have not been denied entry to your test center because of an unacceptable LSAT Admission Ticket photo or ID, and
    • your LSAT registration was not purchased as part of a package. To receive a partial refund for the LSAT, you must have purchased it individually.

    The following auxiliary LSAT fees are nonrefundable:

    • Test Date Change
    • Test Center Change
    • Nonpublished Test Center
    • Handscoring

    How to request an LSAT refund: 

    Mail, fax, or scan/email a signed, dated, and completed LSAT Refund Request Form (PDF) (before the listed deadline) to:

    Law School Admission Council
    LSAT Refund Request
    PO BOX 2000-T
    Newtown PA 18940-0995
    USA

    Fax: 215.968.1277
    Email: LSACrefunds@LSAC.org

    Your refund will take approximately 5 to 10 business days to process, and your test registration will be canceled.

    Request a Credential Assembly Service Partial Refund

    Credential Assembly Service (CAS) fees are partially refundable if:

    • transcript summarization has not yet begun,
    • no letters of recommendation have been received,
    • no electronic applications have been sent to LSAC for processing, 
    • your CAS registration has not expired, and
    • you purchased CAS individually. If you purchased a package, no part of that package is refundable.

    This is important. CAS Refund Requests Forms that are incomplete or missing a signature will not be processed, and the deadline will not be extended for those incomplete requests. If you need CAS reporting in the future, you will need to reregister and pay the full CAS fee.

    How to request a CAS refund:

    Mail, fax, or scan/email a signed, dated, and completed CAS Refund Request Form (PDF) to:

    Law School Admission Council
    CAS Refund Request
    662 Penn Street
    PO BOX 2000
    Newtown PA 18940-0998

    USA

    Fax: 215.968.1119
    Email: LSACinfo@LSAC.org

    Your refund will take approximately 5 to 10 business days to process, and your service will be canceled.

    Credit Card Charge-Backs, Stop Payments, and Returned Checks

    • If you do a credit card charge-back, a reporting hold will be placed on your file, and no further reporting will be possible until you pay the outstanding balance.
    • If you stop payment on any check, or if any check is returned, a reporting hold will be placed on your file, and no further reporting will be possible until you pay the outstanding balance.

    Stopping payment will not withdraw your test registration.

    Reporting Holds

    A reporting hold on your file will not prevent you from taking the LSAT. However, the hold will prevent the release of your LSAT scores and all LSAT and CAS reporting to you and to law schools.

    If the balance due is not settled, the reporting hold will carry over to subsequent LSAC files.
