IU Bloomington records best completion rates in state
Sunday, March 9, 2014
The IndyStar examined the recently released state report that showed only a fraction of all Hoosier students earn their degrees within the traditional two- or four-year time frames. The study showed a racial gap in on-time college graduations in Indiana.
According to the article, "Several initiatives aim to make that [enrolling full-time and finishing on time] easier, including a statewide mandate for degree maps and course availability, so students stay on track with their majors. The state funds colleges based in part on student success. It also offers a $1,300 financial-aid incentive for sophomores and juniors on accelerated degree paths and higher grant awards for students who are on time, not just full time."
The IU Bloomington campus recorded the best completion rates in the state.
