Tuition and fees will not increase at state’s public universities

There’s good news for students attending one of the state’s six public universities, including Dakota State University in Madison.  The South Dakota Board of Regents agreed on Wednesday to maintain its existing tuition and mandatory fees for the next academic year.  

Board President Kevin Schieffer said that “we are in exceptional times” and acknowledged that there would be difficult budget decisions in the coming months amid the changing state revenues and the unknowns about federal stimulus dollars.

Regents agreed to continue the public universities’ current 2019-20 tuition structure for the upcoming academic year, which includes summer and fall 2020 terms and the spring 2021 term.
