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. 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.

Nonrefundable LSAT Fees

  • Change of test date or center fees
  • Nonpublished test center fees
  • If you have been denied entry to your test center because of an unacceptable LSAT Admission Ticket photo or ID, you are not eligible for a refund.

How to Request an LSAT Refund 

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

LSAC
PO BOX 2000-T
Newtown PA 18940

Fax: 215.968.1277
Email: LSACrefunds@LSAC.org

Your refund will take approximately five to ten 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, and
  • your CAS registration has not expired.

This is important. 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

If you are eligible for a partial refund, simply send LSAC a completed Refund Request Form (PDF), or send a signed, dated letter requesting a refund to:

LSAC
PO BOX 2000-T
Newtown PA 18940

Fax: 215.968.1277
Email: LSACrefunds@LSAC.org

Your refund will take approximately five to ten 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.
