UW System To Get More Control Over Reciprocity

New bipartisan legislation would give the University of Wisconsin System authority over tuition reciprocity with Minnesota.

Current agreements between the states date back almost 50 years. They are currently negotiated by the Higher Education Aids Board.

The new deal would let the individual U-W System campuses keep the additional revenue. Right now, that money is deposited into the state budget. Previously, System Interim President Tommy Thompson has said he favors this change.
