South Dakota colleges and universities raising tuition and fees for 2021-22 academic year

March 31, 2021

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — Students in South Dakota’s public universities will pay an average of about $105 more for the upcoming academic year.

The Board of Regents this week approved a tuition and mandatory fee hike of about 1%.

On average, an in-state undergraduate student taking 30 credit hours next year will pay about $9,360 for tuition and mandatory fees.

These new rates are effective for the 2021-22 academic year that begins this summer.

Tuition and fees cover part of the 2.4 percent salary raise for all university employees in the coming year.
