furnished. The person requesting the transcript MUST provide the name and the

FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ALL THE REQUIREMENTS WILL RESULT IN THE

There is NO express service or express service fee for the processing of the transcript
request. Requests are processed in the order in which they are received.

Official transcripts which bear the original signature of the VP Academic, the signature of the
Registrar and the official Seal of the College are normally sent “institution to institution”, i.e.
directly to the receiving institution but can be collected once ready. Please note that the
CANNOT be sent to your home address.

Mailing of Transcripts
Official paper transcripts are sent by registered mail unless otherwise requested for delivery via
courier service, which must be paid for prior to the transcript being dispatched.

The Montego Bay Community College has no way of tracking or expediting the delivery of a
transcript sent by registered mail once it has been delivered to the Jamaica Post. If you chose to
send your transcript via courier service, you will be required to pay the courier fee which is
separate and apart from the processing fees. For international transcripts, we use the services of
FedEx. Courier fees are dependent on the mailing address given for the transcript and exchange
rates.

Transcripts that are to be sent via courier service CANNOT be delivered to Post Office
boxes. Full addresses which would include street addresses, MUST be provided in these
cases. By utilizing the courier service, tracking may be done online from the point of dispatch to
delivery destination/recipient.

As mentioned above, transcript processing fees can be paid at the cashier OR to the following
NCB account at any NCB branch or online transfer (if you use the online third party transfer
option, please ensure that your name is in the COMMENTS section of the online transaction.
We will need to confirm receipt of your payment before we can begin processing your
