MADISON, Wis. (AP) - University of Wisconsin System regents are set to consider a resolution this week calling for raising in-state tuition after next year.

The regents are expected to take up the resolution during a meeting at UW-Eau Claire on Friday. The resolution calls for an tuition increase in the 2018-19 academic year of no more than the rate of inflation.

The resolution notes that regents have asked Walker to increase financial aid and a high-quality education can be delivered in timely manner only if tuition keeps pace with the cost of living.

Gov. Scott Walker has frozen in-state undergraduate tuition for the last four years. The governor has said he wants to continue the freeze through at least the first year of the 2017-19 state budget.
