- UW colleges are looking to attract students from other states.
The regents of the University of Wisconsin System will be considering a proposal to admit a higher percentage of out-of-state students.
The plan would raise the cap on non-resident undergraduate enrollment from 25 percent to 30 percent.
A Board of Regents committee is scheduled to take up the issue Friday, and the full board is set to vote on it.
One Republican lawmaker isn't happy about the plan.
State Representative Steve Nass asked the regents Wednesday to delay action on changing the cap.
He says he's concerned the move would give Wisconsin residents a lesser chance of gaining admission to UW-Madison.
UW System officials say the change would increase diversity and improve flexibility.
