The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents approved an annual operating budget and set tuition rates for the 2009-2010 academic year at its July meeting in Madison.       

UW System President Kevin P. Reilly’s budget froze tuition for the third consecutive year for 12,735 resident students enrolled at 13 freshman-sophomore UW Colleges campuses including the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley.

“Maintaining tuition at 2006 rates for the 2009-2010 academic year means that the UW Colleges will continue to be the most affordable access point for anyone who wants to start, continue or complete a degree,” said UW Colleges and UW-Extension Chancellor David Wilson, who has spearheaded the push to keep the UW Colleges affordable, especially in these challenging economic times.

With this tuition freeze, UWFox will maintain its long-held reputation as an affordable choice for incoming students of all ages who can then complete a baccalaureate degree at UWFox or at any four-year UW campus.

The 2009-2010 cost (tuition and fees) for two semesters at UWFox is $4,506.

“The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley has long been known for its outstanding academic reputation and superb educational value. With the UW comprehensive and doctoral campuses raising their tuition and fees each year, and ours being held constant, UWFox reinforces its position as the most affordable and accessible UW campus in northeastern Wisconsin,” said Jim Perry, UWFox campus executive officer and dean.

“Our small class sizes help provide the kind of personal attention to our students that helps them learn, grow and prepare for the next stages of their academic lives and careers,” he said.

“College bound students thinking of heading to UW-Madison, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Green Bay, UW-Stevens Point, or UW-Oshkosh need only to compare the tuition and fees at those campuses with those at Fox. Our costs are thousands of dollars less, without any loss in academic quality. Students attending Fox for two years save enough money to nearly pay for an entire year’s worth of tuition and fees at other UW campuses.”

UWFox is still accepting applications for the fall semester.  Contact the Student Services Office at 920-832-2620, or visit www.uwfox.uwc.edu for more information.
