Sending community college transcript late

<p>I've taken many community colleges classes and plan to send my transcript to the colleges that I'm applying to. However, winter break has started and the college doesn't start processing the transcripts until Jan 3, past the Jan 1 deadline for college apps. It will probably take a week for them to be mailed out</p>

<p>When do colleges start reviewing apps and will they still accept these late transcripts?</p>

<p>Please help and thank you.</p>
