UW-L Chancellor says admin. could raise tuition after that
MADISON, Wis. – Governor Scott Walker and the Joint Finance Committee want a tuition freeze for UW System resident undergrads to continue for the next two years.
Another freeze could have harmful impacts says UW-La Crosse Chancellor Joe Gow. He says Wisconsin administrators would likely use that new power from the state budget to raise tuition after the two-year freeze expires.
Regent Charles Pruitt voted against the budget, partly because of tuition freeze. It’s the the first time he’s voted against the budget in 12 years on the board.
In the budget, Walker froze tuition for in-state students for the next two years. Tuition had already been frozen the past two years.
