SD Board of Regents Considers Increasing Tuition at Public Universities

The South Dakota Board of Regents is considering two options to increase  tuition and fees at the state’s public universities, reports the Argus Leader. The increase would occur during the 2017-2018 school year.

One option would raise tuition and fees an average of 2.9 percent at South Dakota’s universities. Tuition would be raised 3.4 percent at Black Hills State University, 5.0 percent at Northern State University, and 2.5 percent at Dakota State University.

The board is also considering another option which would include a lower 2.4 percent average increase for students living on-campus. The lower rate would increase tuition at the South Dakota School of Mines by 0.5 percent, South Dakota State University by 2.6 percent, and the University of South Dakota by 3.7 percent.

The board will discuss both options at its meeting at Black Hills State University on March 29.
