UW-Platteville is assisting the tri-state region to develop its workforce. The Tuition Advantage Program (formerly known as the Tri-State Initiative) has increased the number of students from the neighboring states of Illinois and Iowa attending and graduating from UW-Platteville. The Tuition Advantage Program is assisting new and continuing Wisconsin and tri-state businesses in addressing critical workforce needs. The program will continue to have 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.
This program 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 and notified with their admission decision.
