Wisconsin Students May Be Eligible for Tuition Promise

UW–Madison employees and their families who are concerned about the costs of a university education may benefit from a new program called "Bucky's Tuition Promise." The university pledges to cover four years of tuition and segregated fees for any incoming freshman from Wisconsin whose family's annual household adjusted gross income is $56,000 or less. Transfer students from Wisconsin meeting the same criteria will receive two years of tuition and segregated fees. Eligibility is based only on one line from a family's federal income tax return called adjusted gross income, or AGI. There is no separate application process. The tuition guarantee begins in the fall of 2018. The goal of the program is to ensure that anyone in Wisconsin who is admitted to UW–Madison can afford to attend.
