Tuition at SD Public Universities to Increase Next Year

The South Dakota Board of Regents recently approved increases for tuition and fees at the state’s public universities, reports KOTA News. The increase will be 2.9 percent on average, or approximately $237.81 per year. The new rates will be implemented in the 2017—2018 school year, beginning this summer.

Board of Regents President Randy Schaefer cited a lower-than-expected state budget as a reason behind the increase. Tuition rates were not increased in 2014 or 2016, as the legislature appropriated additional funds for the state’s universities.
