UW-Milwaukee students see sharp spike in online course charges
Students at the University Wisconsin-Milwaukee are finding that it's not cheap to go to class at their computers.
The College of Letters and Science is charging $275 more on top of the normal tuition for its online course offerings.
Provost Rita Cheng sees it as a convenience fee, paid by students who don't want to wait a semester for classes that are not always held in person each fall and spring.
The extra money covers the cost of the online courses.
