International Students Replace Traditional Out-of-State Students at the University of Wisconsin

The recession has compelled many talented American students to opt for in-state public universities over out-of-state public universities, which cost on average $27,000 tuition/year for a non-resident.  At the University of Wisconsin system, this void in non-resident applications was swiftly filled by a 25% increase in international students, mostly from China and other Asian countries.

Though the State of Wisconsin has suffered budget cuts like most states, the University of Wisconsin is in much better financial shape than most state schools.  This cushion comes from the licensing fees the University received from the Warfarin patent and the licensing revenue it is still receiving from the Vitamin D patent.   Every time someone in the U.S. drinks milk, the University of Wisconsin sees money.
