Madison - The Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB) announced today that the Wisconsin Joint Committee on Finance has approved the 2003-2004 administrative memorandum for the Minnesota-Wisconsin Interstate Tuition Reciprocity Program. By approving the memorandum, the committee has ensured that the program will continue to serve Wisconsin residents who wish to go to Minnesota for their college education.
The Minnesota-Wisconsin Interstate Tuition Reciprocity Program is an agreement between Wisconsin and Minnesota. It allows Wisconsin residents to attend state colleges and technical colleges in Minnesota for approximately the same tuition costs of a comparable school in Wisconsin. Minnesota residents have the same opportunities for attending Wisconsin schools. Over 10,000 Wisconsin residents take advantage of this program each year.
Participation in this program is not automatic. While all Wisconsin residents are eligible, there is an application form that must be completed and processed by HEAB. Applications for the 2003-2004 academic have been mailed to state high schools and other participants in the program. Interested residents should contact their high school, the Minnesota college they are thinking of attending or HEAB to obtain an application. In addition, the application can be downloaded from the HEAB website.
HEAB's website address is http://heab.state.wi.us. HEAB can be reached by phone at (608) 267-2206 and by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
