IU scales back degree requirements

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Starting in the fall, freshman enrolling in undergraduate degrees at Indiana University will have fewer requirements to meet in order to graduate.

A law passed in 2012 will now require those students seeking bachelor degrees to complete 120 hours of credit work. And those seeking an associate degree will have to complete 60 hours.

Students in health and education degrees will have to meet previous degree requirements. Other exceptions include those degrees that require certification and licensing.

Almost 90 percent of the university's degree programs fall within the 120-credit limit.
