The Board of Regents unanimously approved an expansion to its South Dakota Advantage program Thursday that will grant resident tuition rates to three other states.
Incoming students from Minnesota, Kansas and Missouri will be able to attend South Dakota’s six public universities at the same cost as South Dakota residents starting in the summer semester of 2024.
“This continues to increase the momentum as it relates to our enrollment efforts regionally and trying to draw in people from all over our seven-, eight-, nine- or 10-state region,” board Vice President Jeff Partridge said during the meeting at South Dakota State University. “I look forward to the continued efforts of momentum that we have in enrollment.”
