Annual tuition at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley will increase by $247, to a total of $4,750 for the 2012-2013 academic year, for in-state students following the approval of a 5.5 percent tuition increase for all campuses by the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents. Student fees will bring the total cost for two semesters at UWFox to $5,017.
‘The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley remains an exceptional value for all students looking for an education at a personally focused, local UW campus’ said Dr. Martin Rudd, campus executive officer and dean at UWFox. ‘There are savings of thousands of dollars by completing the first two years at UWFox before transferring to one of the four year campuses to complete your baccalaureate degree.’
The average annual in-state tuition at four-year UW institutions will be $6,939, an increase of $396 from 2011-12. In-state tuition at UW-Madison will rise to $9,273 ($10,379 with fees) and at UW-Milwaukee tuition will be $8,091 ($9,181 with fees). Student fees vary by campus.
Rudd said the tuition hike will cover only a part of the cuts to the university budget imposed by the State Legislature. The UW System lost $316 million in state revenue cuts over the two-year budget period. Tuition increases are expected to raise $110 million.
‘We understand that even small tuition increases can add to the burden on a family and the student who is planning on attending UWFox. Our UWFox Foundation provided more than $130,000 in scholarships to our students this past year.’
UWFox is a member of the UW Colleges, the UW System’s network of 13 freshman/sophomore campuses and UW Colleges Online that offer an Associate of Arts and Sciences degree and prepare students of all ages and backgrounds for baccalaureate and professional programs.
UWFox enrolled more than 1,800 students in 2011-12. UWFox also offers six bachelor’s degrees through collaborations with several UW System four-year campuses, with all classes offered at the Menasha campus.
