MADISON - University of Wisconsin System officials are poised to raise out-of-state and graduate tuition again to help offset the impact of Gov. Scott Walker's resident undergraduate tuition freeze.
The Board of Regents is scheduled to vote on a plan Thursday that would raise out-of-state and graduate tuition by hundreds of dollars at six four-year campuses and all the system's two-year schools.
The largest increase would come at UW-Madison, which has proposed raising nonresident undergraduate tuition by $2,000 in each of the next two years and raising tuition for some graduate programs by as much as $5,000 annually.
The regents in 2015 approved raising nonresident and graduate tuition at eight four-year campuses and this past spring signed off on raising nonresident and graduate tuition at five schools.
