Helping you navigate the college experience.

Student Support Services strives to increase the retention and graduation rates of first-generation students, students who meet federal low-income criteria, and students with disabilities.

Starting August 3rd, the Student Support Services office will be staffed during standard business hours. While walk-ins are welcome, visitors are encouraged to call ahead to determine if business can be completed remotely or to schedule a meeting to maintain low density in the office and promote social distancing.  Scheduling can be done by emailing the main SSS email or contacting your appointed adviser.

Special note for visitors and applicants: Before visiting campus we ask that you review the expectations in the UW-Stout visitors guide.
