Benefits of the eStout Program

This program supports UW-Stout's digital learning environment, which helps our students to be successful in achieving their academic goals. The program ensures that both eligible students and faculty have a standard set of tools — hardware and software — to meet a majority of their wireless computing needs, thus creating a wireless laptop campus environment.

The eStout Program is more than just a computer! Students receive:

  • Laptop computer (see hardware and software specs)
  • Backpack
  • Software
  • Wireless and wired connectivity on campus
  • Course management system
  • Training, service, and support
  • Network storage
  • E-mail
  • Multimedia classrooms

Keep a laptop after graduation! No additional cost!

The digital culture at UW-Stout is emerging as a dynamic agent for changing the ways we learn. The eStout Program is included in undergraduate student tuition so that students are provided with the tools that they need to be technology-literate in this environment.
