Advisory Committee for Differential Tuition

CEAS Differential Tuition

Since 2004, student's taking classes offered by the College of Engineering & Applied Science (CEAS) have been paying a tuition differential. The primary goal of this program is to improve the college's undergraduate teaching laboratories and infrastructure.

Starting at $5/credit in 2004 and plateauing at $20/credit in the fall of 2007, this program has to date raised over $1,500,000 in additional revenue for CEAS. Differential tuition dollars have funded a wide variety of improvements within CEAS, ranging from computer systems to GPS surveying equipment to injection molding machines (More info ...).

Each department and administrative unit within CEAS has the opportunity to request differential tuition funds. Each proposal is evaluated by the Advisory Committee for Differential Tuition. It is this committee's responsibility to make recommendations regarding the proposals the committee feels have the most merit. The committee has five (5) voting members, 3 students and 2 faculty/staff from the college.

Questions regarding differential tuition within CEAS should be directed to Associate Dean Ron Perez. His e-mail is perez@uwm.edu and his direct phone line is (414)229-6543
