Higher Education

College-bound students often have a sea of information to navigate while making their post-high school plans, but the state has now partnered with a national nonprofit to make that easier.

Few college students graduating on schedule

Not many college students in Indiana are claiming their degrees on time. 

The Commission for Higher Education has released its first-ever study on college completion. It found that less than one student out of ten finishes a two-year degree in two years, and just three out of 10 complete a four-year degree in four years.

The commission says an additional year of college can cost an Indiana student $50,000 in extra tuition, lost wages, and related costs.
