COVID-19 Update

South Dakota State University made the difficult decision to cancel all international undergraduate and graduate credit-bearing education abroad programs slated for Summer 2021 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.  The university will make a decision regarding Fall 2021 programs in the near future. 

While we may not be able to travel abroad until at least Fall 2021, we have some new ways for students to engage with people, places, and organizations for study, internships, research and service around the world. Talk to us about bringing the world to you with our Virtual International Connections opportunities!
