UW tuition hike approved by Regents

July 10, 2009

It’s official. Tuition will go up this year by $617 for UW-Madison students, and by $280 at other UW campuses. As the Herald explains, about $250 of that tuition increase comes from Biddy Martin’s “Madison Initiative for Undergraduates.” The plan imposes a hike of $250 on residents and $750 on out-of-staters. Students who come from families with incomes of less than $80,000 would be exempt.

UW System President Kevin Reilly said that he wants to keep tuition increases “modest and predictable.” They key word is predictable. That means that people coming to UW should have a general idea of what they’re going to be asked to pay every year.
