South Dakota State offers a great value: outstanding academic and extracurricular opportunities at a great price. There is no denying the fact that college is an investment. But the return you get back from it is invaluable – especially at SDSU.


Academic Scholarships

At SDSU we are committed to our students' success. One way we demonstrate our commitment is by awarding academic scholarships to students who have excelled in high school – in and out of the classroom.

Financial Aid

We offer an incredible education at an affordable cost. About 88 percent of our students receive some type of financial assistance to help cover that cost each year. Financial limitations should never prohibit a student from going to college. We’re here to help.
