Graphic of Nebraska and South Dakota. Nebraska students can receive in-state tuition at USD.

At the University of South Dakota, we're offering in-state tuition to new Nebraska freshmen and new Nebraska-resident transfers. You can get that out-of-state college experience you're looking for with an in-state price you can afford. In fact, you'll probably pay less at USD as an out-of-state student than you would as an in-state student at a Nebraska university.

Affordable in-state tuition. Scholarship opportunities. And we're just down the road.
