The South Dakota Board of Regents put tuition relief, data protection and campus security high on their priority list, reports the Rapid City Journal.
This would be the third round of tuition relief in the last five years, but unlike previous respites, this one would apply to non-residents and long distance students as well. The goal of the Board of Regents is to reach a 50/50 balance between state support and student payments. Multiple South Dakota schools have voiced concern over the safety of both people and data. Detailed proposals will be presented at the next meeting in early August, after more specific information has been gathered on tuition, fees and a physical security analysis has been conducted.
