(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana colleges will soon have to limit the number of credits needed to earn a degree.

The Indiana House of Representative has approved the plan to limit the college credits needed for graduation to 120.

Universities will have to ask the state Commission on Higher Education for permission to require more.

On Monday that the House voted 62-21 to approve the measure.

Governor Mitch Daniels 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.
