  • Students earn $4 in additional earnings over their lifetime for every $1 they invest in their UW-Stout education.

Committed to Keeping College Affordable

We realize that attending a university is no small decision. That's why we believe in making a UW-Stout degree the best value possible. Most of our undergraduate programs have been streamlined to require only 120 credits to graduate, our textbooks are rented rather than purchased, and we have dozens of scholarship opportunities to help fund your education.
