School Description

South Dakota State University (SDSU) was founded in 1881 owing to a local and national legislation that dates back to 1862, called the Morrill Act. The legislation was passed by Congress and signed by President Abraham Lincoln. The legislation gave way to a revolutionized education institute, one which delivered teaching in the form of liberal and practical arts and catered to people who needed to make a living. SDSU was given university status when on July 1, 1964, when the South Dakota Legislature changed its name from South Dakota State College to South Dakota State University.

SDSU is South Dakota’s largest and most comprehensive institute for higher education. In the fall of 2015 the University had an influx of 12,589 students from all 50 US states, as well as 81 other countries. The students have the a vast variety of options to choose from as SDSU provides 73 majors, 75 minors, 36 specializations, 33 master’s programs, 15 Ph.D programs and two professional doctorates. The Higher Learning Commission has granted SDSU a full ten-year reaccreditation.
