Some UW schools seek higher tuition on grad students, out-of-staters
The UW System Board of Regents will be asked this week to allow nine schools to raise tuition rates for graduate and non-resident students in response to plans to cut as much as $300 million in funding from the statewide budget. The requests for tuition hikes come from Madison, La Crosse, Milwaukee, Parkside, Platteville, River Falls, Stevens Point, Stout and Whitewater. Madison is proposing a four-year plan that would raise non-resident undergraduate tuition by $10,000, while international students would see an $11,000 increase. Other campuses are asking for tuition hikes of several hundred dollars, which would take effect during the next school year. The Press-Gazette has coverage.
