Paying Your School Bills

You are expected to pay each semester's bill at the beginning of each semester.

An alternative billing plan is available for individuals interested in making consecutive partial payments. Billing information will be emailed to you prior to the beginning of each semester. You will be able to view your bill when posted on Access Stout. For more information about billing, please visit Student Business Services.

Financial Aid Disbursement

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.
