For the first time, Wisconsin college students would pay over $10,000 a year to attend UW Madison under a tuition and fee hike announced today.
University System President Kevin Reilly unveiled a 5.5 percent tuition hike for in-state students at all 13 four-year campuses. The amount has been the same for the last six years.
The Board of Regents will act on the increases Thursday.
Resident students would pay $431.00 more per year at the flagship Madison campus, bringing the total to almost $10,400 next year.
That includes the expected final year of a $250.00 annual surcharge approved in 2009.
