UW Regents OK Out-of-State, Grad Student Tuition Increase

UW Regents Approve Raising Tuition for Out-of-State Students

The University of Wisconsin System regents have approved raising tuition for out-of-state undergraduate and graduate students at most of the system’s four-year schools starting next year.

The regents approved the increases during a meeting at UW-Waukesha on Friday.

Plans call for raising tuition by hundreds of dollars at schools in La Crosse, Milwaukee, Parkside, Platteville, River Falls, Stevens Point, Stout and Whitewater this fall.

Tuition for nonresident students and graduate students in a number of programs at UW-Madison by thousands of dollars by 2016.

The increases are designed to help the schools absorb $300 million in system cuts Gov. Scott Walker has included in his 2015-17 state budget proposal as well as align the schools more closely with prices at competing universities around the country.
