Refund Information

LSAT Refunds

Please note the deadlines and guidelines for refunds in the Test Dates and Deadlines section (for the LSAT administrations you selected). Late requests will not be processed.

Refund Policy

LSAT fees are only partially refundable, due to the fact that processing costs are incurred in the registration process, regardless of whether you actually take the test.

Because of the large volume of registrations received, LSAC cannot prevent the processing of a registration once it is submitted. Refund policies apply to all methods of registration and are enforced without exception.

To Request a Partial LSAT Refund

A signed, written request is required. Send the completed Refund Request Form (PDF) or a written request to:

LSAC
PO BOX 2000-T
Newtown PA 18940

or fax to 215.968.1277.

Be sure to include:

  • your name, address, LSAC account number, last four digits of your Social Security or Social Insurance number, and the test date for which you want a refund
  • your signature and current date

Requesting a refund by the deadline will prevent the recording of an absentee notation on your file.

If you miss the refund deadline, you may still change your test date online. See test date change instructions.

Your refund will take approximately six weeks to process, and your test registration will be canceled.

Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Refunds

Refund Policy

Credential Assembly Service (CAS) fees are only partially refundable, due to the fact that processing costs are incurred in the registration process, regardless of whether you actually use the service.

Because of the large volume of registrations received, LSAC cannot prevent the processing of a registration once it is submitted. Refund policies apply to all methods of registration and are enforced without exception.

To Request a Credential Assembly Service Refund (US only)

If a summary of your undergraduate record has not yet begun, no letters of recommendation have been received, and no electronic applications have been sent to LSAC for processing, LSAC will issue a partial refund of your Credential Assembly Service fee and the fees paid for law school reports. Your request must be in writing and received before your Credential Assembly Service account expires. Simply send LSAC the completed Refund Request Form (PDF) or a written request by the refund deadline. Your refund will take approximately six weeks to process, and your service will be canceled.

Mail your refund request to:

LSAC
PO BOX 2000
Newtown PA 18940-0998

or fax to 215.968.1119.

Be sure to include:

  • your name, address, LSAC account number, and the last four digits of your Social Security or Social Insurance number
  • your signature and current date

Refund Policy

The following fees are not refundable:

  • late fees
  • fees for change of test date or center
  • fees for nonpublished test centers

Please note the deadlines and guidelines in the Test Dates and Deadlines section. You'll find this information once you select your refund test date.

Stop Payments/Returned Checks/Credit Card Chargebacks

If you do a credit card chargeback:

  • a hold will be placed on your file
  • 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 hold will be placed on your file
  • a stop-payment charge will be applied to your account
  • no further reporting will be possible until you pay the outstanding balance plus the stop-payment charge

Stopping payment will not withdraw your registration. If you wish to withdraw your test registration, please follow the appropriate refund procedure.

NOTE: A reporting hold on your file will not prevent you from taking the LSAT. However, the hold will prevent the release of your LSAT score(s) and all LSAT and Credential Assembly Service reporting to you and to law schools. If you order publications, shipping delays may also result. If the balance due is not settled, the reporting hold will carry over to subsequent LSAC files.
