UW Regents approved 2.5 percent tuition increase
MADISON - The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents approved a budget Thursday that would increase tuition by an average of 2.5 percent in each of the next two years.
The plan aims to grow enrollment throughout the University of Wisconsin System by about 2,000 students. The budget would rely on about 120 million dollars more from taxpayers.
Kevin Reilly, UW-System president says the goal is to award more bachelors degrees and hopefully entice graduates to stay here.
