§ 465. Fee for examinations and for credential review for admission on
motion; disposition; refunds; funds. 1. Every person applying for
examination for admission to practice as an attorney and counselor at
law shall pay a fee of two hundred fifty dollars, or seven hundred fifty
dollars if, to qualify to take the bar examination, the person must
satisfy the rules of the court of appeals for the admission of attorneys
and counselors at law governing the study of law in a foreign country,
for each taking or retaking of the examination, or if dispensation has
been received from the taking of the examination, four hundred dollars
for credential review for admission on motion. All such fees shall be
paid into the state treasury in the manner provided by section one
hundred twenty-one of the state finance law.

2. Moneys heretofore or hereafter received by the board as fees
pursuant to this section may, within three years from the receipt
thereof, be refunded to the applicant paying the same, on satisfactory
proof that:

a. Such moneys were in excess of the amount required by this section,
to the extent of such excess, or

b. The applicant failed to take the examination for which such fee was
paid because of illness, removal from the state or for any other reason
or cause which, in the judgment and discretion of the board, justified
or excused his failure to take such examination.
Such refunds shall, upon approval by the board and after audit by the
state comptroller, be paid from moneys appropriated for such purpose.
