UW-Plattevlle is assisting the tri-state region to develop its workforce. The Tri-State Initiative has increased the number of students from the neighboring states of Illinois and Iowa attending and graduating from UW-Platteville. TSI is assisting new and continuing Wisconsin and tri-state businesses in addressing critical workforce needs. The initiative has had a transforming effect on the campus and community and features competitive pricing with other tri-state institutions when annual tuition, fees, room, board, and books are included.
The Tri-State Initiative provides a discounted tuition rate for students from Illinois and Iowa. Eligible students save on out-of-state tuition, making UW-Platteville comparable to the resident cost of attendance in their home state. No separate application is necessary. All qualifying applicants will automatically be considered for TSI and notified with their admission decision.
