UW regents extend undergraduate tuition freeze

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents has approved freezing tuition for in-state undergraduate students again this year.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that the regents approved the freeze as part of the system's 2022-23 budget Thursday.

System President Jay Rothman said the system would use $25 million in federal COVID-19 pandemic relief funds to support the freeze. In-state undergraduate tuition has remained flat for the last nine years since Republican legislators imposed a freeze in the 2013-15 state budget.

GOP lawmakers voted last year to lift the freeze but regents keep it in place for the 2021-22 year.
