Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

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. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
I'm not going to put 5 stars for this since college isn't free. However, Stout does put our money to good use. We pay about the same as what other colleges charge, but there are a few perks that we get and other colleges don't offer. For instance, we get a laptop, it works as well as it needs to and there are people to go to if we have computer troubles and need help. We also get to rent our books. No worrying over buying expensive books that we will only use for one semester and then they will college dust on our desks. Here at Stout we rent our books for a semester and then return them when we are done.

Stout is an accredited University of Wisconsin school. I believe that the professors there are very accredited as well. I learn alot in my first year. It is the education of a private school without the cost!
Danielle from Hastings, MN
The campus is beautiful, the professors really care about your future, the price is lower than most colleges and the students are fair. However I'm convinced that the dorm rooms are smaller than average to which I gave this category a four star.
Amanda from Stevens Point, WI
One special thing about Stout is that they provide you with a laptop...yep...a laptop. They are up to date with the latest software and they upgrade you every two years! This was a HUGE financial help. Most places you have to pay that extra money in order to have a computer for your work, but not here! Also there is free computer help so when you're computer is being mean you can take it to get fixed. I don't know about some people, but I think this is a pretty good deal.

College isn't free. But, Stout seems to be worth the money you pay for it. Because it is a state college your not paying a huge amount of money per credit, but it gets pretty spendy.
You only pay per credit for tuition, and housing can get kind of expensive, but it seems somewhat worth it.
Now as far as bang for your buck, I think its pretty worth it to pay what we do for credits, the teachers are very helpful and they know that your paying to take their class so they do their best to make it worth your while.
Meal plans can get very expensive fast, so be careful what you choose. You do get a microwave and a refrigerator in your dorm room so you can have food in there if you choose not to eat at the commons. Speaking of the commons, this is where you would eat most if not all of your meals, this food is the least expensive on campus and its mostly worth what you pay for. Some of it tastes good and some of it doesn't, just depending on what you like personally, so be careful when choosing your meal plan.
Overall Stout is worth the bang for the buck.
Nicole from MN
Stout is a fairly cheap University especially with all of the financial aids and scholarship opportunities. Also, Stout has a 97% job placement rate within 6 months after graduation in which those jobs make a fair amount of money.
Hannah from Okeana, OH
Great school - I really like. I also had a sibling graduate from Stout and find a job within a month. They have a high rating for this.
Sophmore @ Stout
Stout is very well known for their hospitality program, they are probably one of the cheapest hospitality schools around, especially for instate students. Instate students get a great deal, less than 10k tuition and with room and board it's under 15k. Out of state is a little more pricey, but it is worth it.
