Because LSAC incurs processing costs in our registration process, Credential Assembly Service (CAS) fees are only partially refundable, regardless of whether you actually 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 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 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
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.
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.
