MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin college students will have to pay more to attend the University of Minnesota under a change approved by the Wisconsin Legislature’s budget committee.

Currently, Wisconsin makes up the difference between the resident tuition rate for a Wisconsin student to attend a comparable institution in Minnesota. Under the change approved Tuesday by the Joint Finance Committee, that difference would have to be paid by the student.

However, currently enrolled students and those who start in the fall would not be affected. Students starting in 2012 would have to pay the difference and no students could be eligible for the supplement starting in the 2015 school year.

This year, that would have added about $1,400 to the cost of a student attending the University of Minnesota.
