South Dakota Considers In-State Tuition Expansion

(Brookings, SD) — The South Dakota board of Regents is considering expanding in-state tuition to three other states. Students from Minnesota, Kansas and Missouri would be able to attend South Dakota’s six public universities at the same cost as in-state residents. The Board of Regents will meet in Brookings at SDSU next week to discuss and potentially vote for the proposed expansion of the South Dakota Advantage program. Nathan Lukkes, executive director and CEO of the SDBOR, says, “With the higher education landscape changing drastically and some of the demographic challenges coming up in the next decade, borders are becoming less and less important.”
