 In-state tuition rates at the University of Wisconsin are seeing a hike for the first time in a decade.

Yesterday, the Board of Regents approved a proposal from President Jay Rothman that will increase tuition and room and board starting in the fall.  Rothman cited higher operating costs and a one-hundred-30-million-dollar shortfall in Governor Evers’ proposed budget plan as reasoning for the hikes.  Rate increases vary by location but the average annual tuition hike is roughly four-and-half percent for in-state undergrads, close to five percent including other fees.
