UWGB asking for tuition increase above UW’s blanket request

GREEN BAY (WLUK) — The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is one of the seven campuses asking for a tuition increase above the 3.75% increased proposed by the Universities of Wisconsin, which the Board of Regents votes on Thursday.

UW President Jay Rothman says the overall rate increase is similar to recent inflation.

Seven universities are proposing an increase on top of the 3.75% to fund specific needs such as academic advising, financial aid, and faculty hiring in high-demand programs. UW-Green Bay is proposing an added amount, but UW-Oshkosh is not.

According to a UW document, UWGB is asking for an additional $104.40 per undergraduate student for three things:

A career services model to support work-based learning

Career services will be embedded in each college to create an infrastructure that will ensure opportunities, such as internships, are available for all students.

Increased opportunities for high-impact experiences

Continue to improve the campus academic advising model, increase student worker wages, and provide financial aid support.

Faculty and staff support

Decrease the faculty-student ratio by hiring additional faculty. Provide compensation for faculty in high demand areas and allow for professional development for faculty and instructional staff.

In addition, UWGB is asking for $1,500 more annual for graduate students in the Nutrition & Integrated Health – RDN Track.

The proposed resident undergraduate tuition and segregated fees for each university in 2024-25 are as follows:

  • UW-Eau Claire: $9,643
  • UW-Green Bay: $8,700
  • UW-La Crosse: $9,896
  • UW-Madison: $11,604
  • UW-Milwaukee: $10,398
  • UW Oshkosh: $8,532
  • UW-Parkside: $8,271
  • UW-Platteville: $8,425
  • UW-River Falls: $8,824
  • UW-Stevens Point: $9,049
  • UW-Stout: $9,386
  • UW-Superior: $8,813
  • UW-Whitewater: $8,406

The regents meet Thursday at UW-Platteville.
