A three-percent dip in fall enrollment at South Dakota’s public universities will force a reaction from the Board of Regents. Board President Kevin Schieffer says they believe they can manage the drop in revenue for at least one year without major changes.
Schieffer says if that trend doesn’t change soon, they will have to make other plans.
Schieffer says too much budget pressure is being put on student tuition.
The Regents will pursue the Dakota’s Promise scholarship as their top legislative priority next year.
