In-State Tuition for Out-of-State Coyotes

Children of University of South Dakota alumni can pay in-state tuition for their undergraduate degrees regardless of where they live under a program approved by the South Dakota Board of Regents.

Qualification is simple.

  • The program is limited to incoming freshmen or transfer students who attend the same university from which one of their parents or legal guardian received a degree.
  • If students meet initial requirements for admission, their tuition rate will be at the in-state-rate per credit hour rather than the rate for out-of-state students making a world-class education from USD even more affordable.

Students already accepted at USD should contact Dean of Enrollment Mark Petty at 605-658-6220 or to determine if they qualify for the new Child of Alumni rate.
