UW System Regents keep tuition at 2006 level
The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents today approved tuition rates for the 2010-11 academic year that will freeze tuition at the UW Colleges freshman-sophomore campuses, including the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley, for the fourth consecutive year. Tuition will increase by 5.5 percent at the four-year UW System universities.
“This is good news for students and the Fox Valley community,” said Jim Perry, campus executive officer and dean at UWFox. “UWFox offers a true University of Wisconsin education, with highly qualified faculty and small classes for the lowest cost in the UW System. We’re the best value in the UW System.”
“The UW Colleges are the gateway to the UW System for thousands of students and families in Wisconsin who might not otherwise be able to afford college,” said Chancellor David Wilson, chancellor of the UW Colleges and University of Wisconsin-Extension. “This tuition freeze means the UW Colleges will continue to be the most affordable access point for anyone who wants to start, continue or complete a degree within the UW System.”
The tuition for one academic year (two semesters) at the UW Colleges will remain at $4,268 for 2010–11. That is $3,665 less than UW–Madison, $3,001 less than UW–Milwaukee and $1,391-$2,541 less than the 11 other four–year comprehensive UW universities. Students and families can realize even more savings if students live at home during their first two years of college at UW-Fox.
UWFox is one of the University of Wisconsin Colleges, the 13 freshman-sophomore campuses of the UW System that offer an associate degree in arts and science and prepare students of all ages and backgrounds for baccalaureate and professional programs. Approximately 1,700 students were enrolled at UWFox in the 2009-2010 academic year.
