Regents to consider more out-of-staters at UW-Madison


In a proposed move that could ultimately affect applications and enrollment at other UW System institutions (because Madison’s ripples are felt statewide), the UW’s flagship campus will this week ask UW Regents for permission to lift the school’s cap on out-of-state students. UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank says the move could attract more young people to Wisconsin and boost tuition revenue in the wake of deep budget cuts. Currently, out-of-state undergraduate enrollment at Madison can’t exceed 27.5 percent of total undergraduate enrollment. See news coverage.
