State of Confusion
If you have same day availability the entire amount will be available immediatley unless you place an extended hold on it. That would be your case by case or exception hold. if you place eitehr of those holds you would then follow those rules that you should have outlined in your funds availability policy.
A common mistake people make designing something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

For check deposits (other than on-us) in excess of $5,000, when you've disclosed the potential for both case-by-case and exception holds, you can combine both types of holds and provide a single notice. Assume the total deposit amount is $10,000:

The first $200 will be available on BD 0 or BD1 (BD 0 is the day of deposit; BD 1 is first business day after day of deposit).

The next $4,800 is available by BD 2.

The balance of $5,000 is available by BD 7.
