Can a paid off and released state lien for student loans be removed from my credit report?
This is in the state of MN and I have the lien release. If it can't be removed is there a way to update the record to show it has been paid?

Credit History

Unfortunately its part of your credit history, so it will remain on your report for 7 years from the time it was paid off. 

It should be updated and show as paid within 60 days in most states,  (governments tend to move a little slower than regular creditors)  If it doesn't update you can file a dispute but wait for the 60 days to pass first.

good luck
