UW Regents To Vote On Budget Thursday

7/5/17 – A tuition freeze would continue for a fifth year, but U-W students would still have to pay more for room, board, and student fees this fall. The university’s Board of Regents will act tomorrow (Thursday) on a six-point-two billion dollar budget for the coming year that raises food and housing costs by two-point-six percent on the four year campuses. Fees for student groups and programs would also rise an average of two-point-six percent, although they vary from school to school with no increase planned at Green Bay. Republican lawmakers first ordered a tuition freeze four years ago, after being upset when learning about millions of dollars in hidden reserves on the various campuses.
