PIERRE — Enrollment at South Dakota’s six public universities grew by slightly less than 1 percent this fall, due partly to a gain in older part-time students and the loss of those who left school for employment in an improving economy, higher education officials said Tuesday.
Depending upon the plan, the tuition would rise annually through at least 2016 and up through 2018, until the six universities came into general balance, so that their percentages of base funding are approximately equal to their percentages of students.
PIERRE (AP) — A legislative panel has approved the South Dakota university system's plan to spend more than $200 million in the next decade to construct new buildings, renovate some existing buildings and upgrade utilities.
South Dakota attracts more high school graduates from out of state to attend college and technical schools than it loses to other states, and that could help fill crucial jobs in the future, officials said.
PIERRE — Two reports indicate that a higher percentage of students at South Dakota’s public universities who sat for their proficiency exams needed remedial help in the past year, at the same time that a higher percentage of students overall remained in good academic standing.
