Standard turnaround times for CIA students is 24 hours. However, depending on the time of year and workloads, turnarounds times will vary. All efforts will be made to produce student work in the timeliest manner possible and, in some instances, it may be possible to turnaround orders sooner than 24 hours.


Please speak to a DOC staff member regarding questions about turnaround times for CIA student orders.


Standard turnaround times for non-CIA student orders is 3-5 business days. In the event that deadlines require rushed delivery, we are happy to accommodate those requests whenever possible. Such requests will be addressed on a case-by-case basis and, when applicable, a rush fee will be assessed according to the formulas below.


2 day turnaround = +25% additional fee

Next day turnaround = +35% additional fee
