Tuition Hike Up For Debate

Tuition Hike Up For Debate

The tuition freeze at the University of Wisconsin has ended, but state lawmakers still want some say over how high the price of a UW degree can go.

A Senate panel is set to vote tomorrow on a plan that would tie any future UW tuition increases to the consumer price index. The idea is to stop UW Regents from raising tuition too high or too quickly. The plan comes after lawmakers froze tuition at UW campuses for nearly a decade, and comes after UW Regents approved a four percent tuition increase earlier this year.
