The state of Minnesota has signed off on a deal previously approved by Wisconsin that keeps alive the two-state tuition reciprocity agreement but with some changes affecting students from Wisconsin.
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.
The state of Wisconsin owed the state of Minnesota and its colleges and universities nearly $13 million under the states’ tuition reciprocity deal for the 2009 school year.
It may cost Wisconsin college students more money to attend college in Minnesota under a proposal backed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
