Cross: Tuition freeze likely to continue beyond 2014-15
UW System-wide tuition freezes could continue in the coming years, System President Ray Cross said Wednesday (June 4), telling the Wisconsin State Journal he favors extending the freeze beyond its current expiration date after 2014-15 school year. “I really think we’re going to embrace that tuition freeze for two more years,” Cross is quoted as saying. “We’re generally in favor, assuming we can work through with the governor and the Legislature some of the other issues to help us address our finances.” System spokesman John Diamond added that tuition is now considered “a revenue source of last resort,” the story says. Cross reiterated his call for the freeze during Thursday’s Regents meeting. You can check out the State Journal story, here.
