Ball State Transcript Request Challenged in Court

Ball State University officials are appealing a court ruling that would require the university to release the official college transcript of a student who left the school with an unpaid tuition balance.
Last year, a Lake County judge ordered the university to release the transcript of Jordan Irons, who enrolled at Ball State in the fall of 2011 but withdrew in the spring of 2012.
The “Star Press” reports the university’s appeal of the trial court’s ruling to the Indiana Court of Appeals was recently dismissed, but Ball State will ask the Indiana Supreme Court to review the case.
The court case stems from the divorce of Irons’ parents and who should pay for his education.
