South Dakota State University has proudly become the regional center of rich academic and cultural diversity thanks to our large and growing international student population. While we are always actively working to recruit students to enroll, much of our growth can be attributed competitive tuition, attractive academic programs, but most importantly, referrals from current and former students. The hardworking faculty and staff and the friendly community of Brookings continue to make SDSU a welcome home to students from around the world!
Numbers are accurate as of Fall Semester 2017.
