Student Resources

Student Services        

Students at a distance require a great deal of assistance throughout their enrollment processes. This comes in the form of the program director and is aided by the Graduate School and other offices within UW-Stout.


Financial Aid

After admission, students need assistance with financial aid; UW-Stout’s Financial Aid Office assigns a case manager to each student to meet the needs of the adult learner.
