Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
In a small town, with a huge nasty lake and a beautiful trail. Not too many students, so the teachers actually know who I am. Stout's ranking would probably end up with an eight, in my eyes.
Laura from Milton, WI
It is a nice University to be in. The Professors are very good. And the people are great.
Effie from Woodbury, MN
It is a great and welcoming community. The university really tries to help students become involved in activities around campus which they have plenty of. The academics are focused on being hands on and giving plenty of opportunity for real life experiences.
Hannah from Okeana, OH
Great school if you're looking for smaller campus. Laptop program is awesome and so is textbook rental program - no need to search for & buy your books, just check out and return to library when class is done! Professors are great to work with if you need extra help.
