UW Regents vote to raise tuition by 5.5 percent, new grants help some students
The University of Wisconsin's four-year campuses will raise their tuition by 5.5 percent this fall.
But low- to middle-income students will get enough new grants to avoid the increase, under a budget passed Thursday by the Board of Regents.
The panel approved a $2.2 billion spending package on a voice vote. It also includes an average increase of 5.3 percent for room and board and student fees for things like dorm improvements.
