UW Regents say they are worried about the growing cost to get a college education, but almost every single one of them also voted to raise tuition at the state’s campuses.
The UW’s five percent tuition hike passed Friday on a 15-1 vote. Only Technical College System President Rodney Pasch voted against the increase, saying those are real dollars that real students are going to have to pay. The five percent tuition hike is the first in a decade, and is earmarked mostly for raises and university employees. Students will see the higher costs on their tuition bills next fall.
