UW-Green Bay’s room and board costs will remain flat and segregated fees will increase by 6 percent under the 2014-15 UW System operating budget unanimously approved during Thursday’s (June 5) Board of Regents meeting.
The increase, coupled with a legislatively mandated tuition freeze, means the average UW-Green Bay undergraduate will pay a total of $82 more to attend the University in 2014-15 than he or she did in 2013-14, according to figures provided by the UW System. For students who live on campus, that translates to a 0.6 percent increase overall.
Under the resolution passed Thursday, the average Wisconsin resident UW-Green Bay freshman will pay a total of $7,758 in tuition and segregated fees for the 2014-15 academic year, up from $7,676 in 2013-14. That figure breaks down to $6,298 in tuition and $1,460 in segregated fees. The fees’ increase can be primarily attributed to enrollment decreases at the University.
On the housing side, the typical Wisconsin freshman living on campus will pay $6,200 in room and meal costs, which is the same amount as 2013-14. Total 2014-15 costs for tuition, fees, housing and meals will be $13,958 for the average resident freshman living on campus, up $82 (0.6 percent) from $13,876 in 2013-14. UW-Green Bay’s total 0.6 percent increase is less than the UW System average of a 1.5 percent increase overall.
