Listen to this article URBANA — Following the passage of a new state law, all three University of Illinois campuses have ended debt-related transcript holds for students.Previously, if a UI student owed $25 or more to their university, the student wasn't allowed to order an official transcript detailing his or her academic record.On May 27, Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a state law banning the practice in Illinois public universities and colleges by next academic year. In June, UI System President Tim Killeen directed administrators to immediately lift debt-related holds.
