Requirements and Process for Academic Programs with Non-Pooled Tuition

UW-Madison Requirements and Process for Academic Programs with Non-Pooled Tuition

Post-baccalaureate programs (this includes capstone certificates as well as graduate-level majors or named options) that meet certain criteria may be allowed to have paid tuition returned to the program.  For programs that meet these criteria and are willing to operate under different rules, paid tuition for their program will be made directly available to the program through a Fund 131 account.

These programs differ from the standard model for programs supported through traditional/101 funding; in the standard model and all paid tuition is pooled centrally and allocated to school/colleges and administrative units to support the academic and instructional infrastructure.  The rules associated with non-pooled tuition programs are designed to protect the tuition pool and support program success.

The UW-Madison Requirements and Process for Academic Programs with Non-Pooled Tuition outlines the planning considerations and criteria for non-pooled tuition programs, in addition to requirements for regular academic program approvals. 

Non-pooled programs must be approved on the following timeline to allow for set-up and marketing. Changes to the first admit term must be approved on the same timeline.

 Program start semester:
 UAPC or Board of Regents approval by:

 Spring  October
