FINANCIAL AID
Students may use financial aid to help pay for the costs of their study abroad or National Student Exchange program offered through UW-Stout. You will want to provide your financial aid counselor with the Cost Estimate for your program so that your award can be adjusted to take into account the increased costs such as airfare, etc. If you have not applied for financial aid, contact the Office of Financial Aid for information and application forms. Note: Your financial aid need may increase when you study abroad but you will need to talk with your financial aid counselor to calculate your eligible aid amount.
