Surcharge proposed at U. of Wisconsin to improve student services

March 27, 2009

The University of Wisconsin at Madison is proposing a surcharge on all students from family incomes of at least $80,000 to pay for needed services oriented toward undergraduate education that current levels of state support don't cover.

The Madison Initiative for Undergraduates would pay for 75 additional faculty positions, plus improved student services.

The extra payments - which would be on top of any tuition increases approved for the university system - would start at $250 for Wisconsin residents and $750 for out-of-state residents, and would grow over four years to $1,000 for residents and $3,000 for non-residents.
