Financial Aid including grants, loans, scholarships, and Federal Work-Study is available for students who attend South Dakota State University (SDSU). Ninety-four percent of our first-time full-time students qualified for financial aid in the 2020-2021 academic year.
To qualify for Federal Financial Aid Programs, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) StudentAid.gov and meet the eligibility requirements for each type of financial aid.
Information about the specific types of financial aid available and the eligibility requirements can be found on our website. Questions about financial aid should be directed to the SDSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at 605-688-4695.
