The UW Board of Regents has voted to back President Jay Rothman’s call to keep tuition frozen for the upcoming school year.

Republicans put a tuition freeze in place starting in the 2013-14 school year, but the current state budget returned to the regents the power to set tuition.

Still, Dem Gov. Tony Evers earlier this year announced he was sending $25 million in federal COVID funds to the System to keep the freeze in place through the end of this biennium in mid-2023.

According to the System, the average cost of attending a four-year UW school for a typical resident undergrad will rise 1.7 percent, or $273, for 2022-23. That includes tuition, fees, and room and board.
