Our Friendly Office Staff

UW-Stout's Financial Aid Office prides itself in providing premier service to our students and their parents. In fact, our students nominated us "Outstanding Service Office" in 2004.

We understand that many students and their families cannot meet all the costs of college, so we strive to meet the financial needs of all our students. More than 82% of full-time UW-Stout undergraduates receive some form of financial aid. While we cannot guarantee to meet all of our students' financial need, on average, UW-Stout meets 82% of need for students who receive any need-based aid; with the average financial aid package totaling $10,638. Most families use a variety of resources to pay for a college education.
