A Worthwhile Investment

When we talk about how a UW-Stout degree is a valuable investment, we aren't just stating opinions — we've got the numbers to back it up:

  • 97% of our students are employed or continuing education after graduation.
  • For every $1 that students invest in their education at UW-Stout, they receive $3.50 in additional earnings over their lifetime.
  • The average annual rate of return for a UW-Stout degree is 15%.
