You’re ready to go back to school to become an RN or LPN or something else.
But there’s one thing holding you up:
You couldn’t get your transcript from Missouri College because you owed them money.
And they’re now closed.
You want your transcript but you don’t know what to do to get it.
Let me help with that.
Request a transcript
You have two options to get your transcript for Missouri College:
- Submit a transcript request form to the Missouri Department of Higher Education
- Submit a transcript request to parchment.com
You can request 2 transcripts for free from the MDHE. Each request after the first 2 costs $10.
After you complete the form, you can fax it to (573) 751-6635. You can also mail it to: MDHE – Proprietary, PO Box 1469, Jefferson City, MO 65102-1469.
What to do if you owe Missouri College money
Before it closed, Missouri College was bought by Weston Educational Inc. Later, Weston closed Missouri College. It also closed several other schools before it filed bankruptcy.
I tell you all of this because, honestly, I’m not sure who you’re going to need make payment arrangements with to get your transcript.
That said, I don’t know if anyone is going to stop you from getting a transcript.
But if they do, you can pay what you owe.
Now if you can’t afford to pay what they’re asking for and they won’t settle, file bankruptcy. Especially if you have other debt like evictions, repossessions, medical bills, credit cards, etc.
How bankruptcy helps you get a transcript
When you file bankruptcy, you trigger a rule that stops all collection activities against you.
Refusing to give you a transcript until you pay a debt is a collection activity.
So…if you want to get your transcript after you file bankruptcy, here’s what to do:
- Request your transcript
- Send a copy of your bankruptcy paperwork,
- Tell them where you want your transcript sent.
