School Description

Home to 12,000+ students, including more than 750 international students from over 80 countries, SDSU is the most culturally diverse campus in South Dakota. With 82 bachelor's degree, 36 master’s degrees, 15 Ph.D. programs and two professional programs, SDSU has something for just about everyone. Admission to SDSU at the bachelor degree level gives applicants the freedom to choose any major (professional programs excluded) and the flexibility to change their major if they decide on a different path!

SDSU belongs to a select group of Land Grant Universities, as designated by the Morrill Act of 1862. The original land-grant mission focused on scientific agriculture, mechanical arts, military science and the revolutionary idea of making public higher education accessible to everyone. Keeping with this tradition, South Dakota State offers affordable tuition rates, moderate GPA requirements (2.6 GPA equivalent), ACT/SAT waiver for non-U.S. applicants, and reasonable TOEFL/IELTS requirements.

South Dakota State has 13 Residence halls (dorms) and campus apartments, giving students a variety of housing options and prices. There are also private rental houses and apartments within walking distance of campus. 

SDSU is located in Brookings, South Dakota with 24,000 residents. Urban settings such as Minneapolis, Minnesota and Omaha, Nebraska are each less than a four-hour drive away, perfect for weekend getaways. Also, Brookings is home to some very noteworthy industries such as:

Daktronics Inc., the world's industry leader in designing and manufacturing electronic scoreboards, programmable display systems, and large screen video displays. Bel Brand Cheese, a world leader in branded cheeses, headquartered in Paris, France. Brookings is one of only five U.S. locations. 3M Company, an American multinational conglomerate corporation. Larson Manufacturing, the largest manufacturer of storm doors and storm windows in the United States.
