A $1 million grant will help improve college graduation rates among Hoosiers.

The funds come from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and were awarded through Complete College America.

Ivy Tech Community College will use half the money to redesign its remedial courses.

President Tom Snyder says the current method, used nationwide, is not working.

The regional campuses of Indiana University will receive $250,000 for developing tools to help students do a better job of mapping out their courses to graduate on time.

The remaining $250,000 will go to the Commission for Higher Education for data analysis and planning.
