Tuition Reciprocity change

University of Wisconsin-River Falls Chancellor Maria Gallo joined others Wednesday at the state Capitol in Madison as Gov. Tony Evers signed into law a change in Wisconsin-Minnesota tuition reciprocity regulations that will provide additional revenue for UW-River Falls and other Universities of Wisconsin schools.


The tuition reciprocity bill approved last month by the Assembly and Senate will allow UW-River Falls and other Wisconsin public universities to retain the full share of tuition revenue that Minnesota students pay to attend Wisconsin schools. That amount is higher than what Wisconsin students pay. 


Without tuition reciprocity funding, UW-River Falls is losing between $3 million and $4 million per year in revenue, Gallo said. 

Previously, the additional funding paid by Minnesota students went to the general fund of the state budget. Allowing universities to retain those dollars will provide UW-River Falls with much-needed additional money, Gallo said.

Nearly half of UW-River Falls students are from Minnesota, the highest percentage among Universities of Wisconsin schools.
