Can my law school refuse to release my transcript based upon

Resolved Question:

Can my law school refuse to release my transcript based upon an outstanding 5,000 bill? I was disbarred 3 years ago for a DWI and am applying for a teaching fellowship. I nned the transcript for the application and I really don't have the money to pay. I'm a single mom with 4 kids just making it.

This is a pretty standard policy at all major colleges and universities. They have the right to refuse you services until you pay your obligations.

Being that the overall tuition was 80,000, so they got a great percentage of their money and the transcript is so fundamental, isn't that a bit overreaching. I'm not willfully avoiding it. I made less than poverty level last year.

It may be overreaching, rude, mean and cruddy, but as an attorney I am sure you know that the legal thing isn't always the fair and nice thing.
