Board of Regents Education Committee approves raise in nonresident enrollment

The UW System Board of Regents Education Committee unanimously recommended the approval of a request by UW-Madison to waive the nonresident student enrollment cap for the next four years, according to a UW System release.

The proposal calls to waive the current 27.5 percent nonresident enrollment cap, with a review by the Board of Regents after four years. As part of the policy, there will also be at least one interim report in December 2017. UW-Madison will also enroll and keep at least 3,600 Wisconsin residents in each incoming freshman class over that period.

The measure was initially brought forth by UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank in February, where she proposed the cap be raised to 30 percent.

Blank said in an Oct. 2 online post that it could potentially help make up for a recent decline in the number of high school graduates within Wisconsin.

The Board of Regents voted Friday to officially waive the nonresident student enrollment cap for the next four years, effective Fall 2016.
