(BLOOMINGTON) - Ivy Tech Community College is unveiling a new academic model that uses an automated system to advise students about what classes they need each semester and eliminates their ability to enroll as "undecided."

The moves are designed to address a shortage of advisers and to help more students graduate or transfer to a four-year school.

Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder says the new structure will take effect next fall.

The Herald-Times reports students who enroll under the new system will be required to choose a "meta-major" to begin completing prerequisites for two- or four-year degrees. Those include liberal arts, health sciences or science, technology, engineering and math.

The new academic model also eliminates college algebra as a prerequisite for many majors.
