Paying and Disbursement

Paying Your School Bills

You are expected to pay each semester's bill prior to or at the beginning of each semester. An alternative billing plan is available for individuals interested in making consecutive partial payments. Billing and financial aid information will be e-mailed to you prior to the beginning of each semester. All other billings will be sent to your Stout e-mail or local address. You will be able to view your bill, when posted on AccessStout. For more information about billing, visit Student Business Services.

Financial Aid Disbursement

When a financial aid package is complete, you can expect aid to disburse beginning the first day of class.

Your financial aid award is usually divided into two equal payments, which are disbursed at the beginning of each semester. Your financial aid will be disbursed directly to UW-Stout, and will go towards paying your tuition, fees, housing and dining charges. Any remaining funds after these charges are paid will be returned to the student in the form of a refund.

Manage Your Money Online

Your StoutOne card is your official university identification card. As a new student you'll activate your card and choose how you would like to receive refunds and paychecks. Refunds will be automatically sent to your StoutOne account, and disbursed in the method you choose.
