MADISON, Wis. (AP) — University of Wisconsin System President Jay Rothman's plan to increase tuition, fees and room and board costs next year would drive up undergraduate student expenses as much as 5.4% next year, according to an analysis released Friday.

Rothman announced earlier this month that he would ask the Board of Regents for a 5% tuition increase. The new analysis indicates his plan also includes raising undergraduate student fees and room and board costs as well as increasing costs for specific programs and raising graduate students' tuition.
