Important Details

  1. Tuition and fees are required to be paid at the beginning of each semester. Costs for tuition and fees are based on estimated increases for the coming year and are subject to change. Fees include segregated fees or $51.93 per credit, international services fee of $200 per term, and orientation fee of $150 (first semester only).

  2. ESL students are not charged for textbook rental or eStout laptop fee.

  3. Many international students live and eat on campus. The housing contract reserves your room and meal plan for the school year, and you can also choose to live on campus during the summer (no summer meal plan available). Some students choose to live off campus, and costs are similar, depending upon the type of apartment.

  4. Additional health insurance cost estimates (academic year):
    Spouse — $1,808.00
    Each child — $1,808.00

    Health insurance is mandatory.

Dependents: Support of dependents is not included in the above estimates. An additional $8,000 yearly (including insurance) is estimated for support of spouse and $5,500 (including insurance) for each child. In order to receive a Visa for spouse and children, you must show that you have funds to cover their expenses. Funds are not available in Menomonie or at UW-Stout to cover these costs.
