Indiana will cap degree credits

In an effort to make college more affordable, the Indiana House of Representatives has approved a plan to limit the college credits needed for graduation at its public institutions to 120, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported.

Although the law restricts most majors, universities may ask the state’s Commission on Higher Education for permission to require more. It also allows colleges to breach the 120-credit limit for programs that require the extra credits for national accreditation.
