Prospective Students

UW-Stout has spent more than 125 years perfecting an educational experience that integrates learning with doing. At the heart of our approach is the idea that learning should be an active experience. Classrooms, laboratories and internship/coops provide a forum for testing ideas and challenging what doesn’t make sense. Whether collaborating with classmates, with a faculty member on a research project, or with an employer on an internship assignment, you'll get your hands on your future.

Preparing for UW-Stout

High school preparation should include four years of mathematics. If you have not taken a trigonometry course in high school, then a pre-calculus course should be taken prior to enrolling in calculus and analytical geometry. Communication skills and applied problem solving skills are important, so you should take as many English and science courses as possible. An introductory computer course is also recommended.

Starting Out

During your first semesters at UW-Stout, you’ll enroll in a combination of general education and major core courses including calculus and computer science. You’ll meet regularly with your advisor to discuss your academic progress and future course work. Together you will develop an academic plan for graduation to help you achieve your career objectives.
