UW regents panel compromises on nonresident cap

MADISON - A panel of University of Wisconsin System regents has approved a compromise plan for admitting a higher percentage of out-of-state students.

The current cap on non-resident undergrad enrollment is 25 percent. UW-Madison wants to raise the cap to a three-year average of 30 percent.

A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report (http://bit.ly/YSPFqB ) says the committee decided Thursday to raise the cap to 27.5 percent. The full Board of Regents will vote on the plan Friday.

The cap applies to all 26 UW schools, but UW-Madison is the only campus to reach and slightly exceed the current cap.

UW officials say the cap was instituted decades ago, not to manage enrollment but to limit the number of protesters. Officials at the time assumed the trouble-makers were coming from outside Wisconsin.
