WHEN CAN I GET MY TRANSCRIPT AFTER I HAVE MADE MY FINAL PAYMENT?
For checks written, there is a seven business day wait for the check to clear the bank before the transcript is released. For ACH/electronic check payments, there is a seven business day wait before the transcript is released. This is because the ACH/electronic check is treated like a regular check. For credit card (MasterCard, Discover or American Express) payments, transcripts will be released within 24 hours.
