MADISON, Wis. (AP) — University of Wisconsin regents are poised to raise graduate tuition at eight schools.

Plans call for raising resident graduate tuition at Eau Claire, Green Bay, La Crosse, Oshkosh, Parkside, Stevens Point, Stout and Whitewater. Green Bay would see the biggest increase, from $7,793 to $7,996.

Nonresident graduation tuition would go up at Eau Claire, Green Bay, Oshkosh, Parkside, Stevens Point, Stout and Whitewater. Green Bay would see the largest jump, from $17,106 to $17,551.

Tuition for some specialty graduate programs would also increase, including physical therapy at La Crosse and Milwaukee; business programs at Milwaukee, Oshkosh, Parkside and Whitewater; speech pathology at Stevens Point; and computer science at Whitewater.

The regents’ education committee is set to vote on the plans Thursday with the full board set to vote Friday.
