Students at the University of Wisconsin could be paying much more for school next year due to state wide budget cuts for education.
Politico reports, “Nine University of Wisconsin campuses will see a significant tuition increase next year, the system’s board of regents said today, as state lawmakers debate a proposed budget that would cut $300 million from higher education.”
The Wisconsin Gazette elaborates by saying, “The regents’ education committee voted Thursday to implement only the first two years of the plan, which translates to a $6,000 jump for nonresident undergraduates and spares the graduate students as much as an additional $10,000. Committee members said they were worried the economy could change and approving four years of increases could anger legislators.”
