SUPERIOR — Tuition at the University of Wisconsin-Superior will again remain frozen for the upcoming academic year.

“Affordability remains one of the biggest concerns of students and families we are working with,” said Jeremy Nere, UW-Superior senior enrollment officer, in a news release. “The tuition freeze will help keep institutions like UW-Superior competitive in providing high quality education to students in our region.”

The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents approved a 2022-23 annual operating budget that continues to freeze tuition for in-state undergraduates as recommended by UW System President Jay Rothman.

Resident undergraduate tuition hasn’t changed since fiscal year 2013-14.

“Keeping our universities affordable and accessible is a priority, and thanks to the funding we received from Gov. (Tony) Evers, we are freezing tuition this coming academic year,” Rothman said in the statement. “Moving forward, it is critical we make the investments necessary to enhance the quality of education that makes the University of Wisconsin System attractive to students while maintaining affordability for Wisconsin families.”

Rothman told regents he requested a review of affordability that would compare UW System costs to those of peer institutions and assess the financial impact of a public higher education in Wisconsin on family incomes.

“We appreciate the Legislature’s recognition of the board as the tuition-setting authority for the UW System,” said Regent President Edmund Manydeeds III. “The affordability review requested by President Rothman will provide us the data we need to make decisions going forward.”

Overall, the average cost of attending a UW System university for a typical residential undergraduate student living on a main four-year campus, including tuition, fees, and room and board, will rise 1.7%, or $273, for 2022-23. For branch campuses, the typical increase is 0.1% or $6.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
