(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels is signing off on a requirement that would limit the number of college credits state university students need to earn a degree.

The plan to limit the college credits needed for graduation to 120 in most cases. Universities will have to ask the state Commission on Higher Education for permission to require more.

Daniels signed the measure into law Friday. He included the measure as part of his final legislative agenda saying that he was concerned that college degrees were becoming too expensive.

Opponents of the measure, including the state's public universities, won a key concession from lawmakers. The altered proposal allows them to breach the 120-credit limit for programs that require the extra credits for national accreditation.
