(Pierre, SD) — South Dakota universities are looking to boost enrollment through affordability and accessibility. Experts predict the number of college-aged students to dwindle, and as other states roll out more college affordability programs, the state wants to keep up. The Board of Education plans to implement creative recruitment tactics and another tuition freeze. The six regents schools froze tuition on their own in 2022. There’s also an extension plan for the South Dakota Advantage Program that will clear students from Colorado, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota and Wyoming to pay the same price for tuition as South Dakota residents.
