UW regents consider student fees, room-and-board increases
MADISON, Wis. — University of Wisconsin System students would have to play more in fees and for room-and-board this year under a plan regents are considering.
The regents are scheduled to vote Thursday on a 2020-21 operating budget that calls for increasing student fees an average of $30 across the system’s four-year schools. Room-and-board costs would go up an average of nearly $130 across the institutions.
UW-Oshkosh would see the biggest jump in fees at $60. UW-River Falls would see the biggest increase in room-and-board costs at $96. Tuition for in-state undergraduates would remain frozen as per language in the current state budget.
