Tuition Plateau

An Undergraduate tuition plateau is the range of credits where tuition normally remains the same. The 12-to-18 credit plateau is the tuition structure generally adopted for all University of Wisconsin System universities for Undergrad students. It means that once you are enrolled in 12 credits for a semester, you would pay the same tuition as if you enroll in 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 or 18 credits.
