MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It could cost more than $10,000 per year for in-state students to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison if a recommended tuition increase is approved.
The university's Board of Regents is scheduled to take up the proposed 5.5% tuition increase Thursday.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports it's the sixth straight year in which system President Kevin Reilly is recommending a 5.5% tuition increase for in-state students.
The regents can't raise tuition more than that due to a legislative cap.
Reilly calls the proposal a "modest, predictable tuition increase" that will provide additional revenue for campuses.
If the proposal is approved, out-of-state students would also see an increase in tuition and fees. It would cost a non-resident $26,096 to attend school at the Madison campus.
