(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University has started a new office aimed at helping more students graduate on time at all the school's campuses across the state.

The Office of Completion and Student Success that started this month aims to have more IU students earn bachelor's degrees within four years.

Office director Rebecca Torstrick tells The Herald-Times that the initiative includes using new online degree maps that show students what classes they need to graduate. She says those maps will be used on all eight IU campuses to cover students who transfer within the system or take classes at a different campus.

A state report this year found that about 50 percent of students at IU's Bloomington campus were graduating on time, while the regional campuses were at 10 percent or less.
