Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Academic Partnerships

Take classes close to home

Some people just learn better in the classroom. We get it.

If you'd like to take classes, but can’t make it to our main campus, The University of South Dakota (USD) Community College for Sioux Falls and the South Dakota Partnership for Student Success (SDPaSS) programs bring DSU to southeastern South Dakota.

Both partnerships are centered in Sioux Falls, bringing you even closer to home. 

A better fit for your schedule

The majority of our courses at The Community College for Sioux Falls and the SDPaSS program are taught in-person by DSU professors. Since our professors can’t be in two places at once, DSU classes are offered at different times than those on the main campus.

Community College for Sioux Falls

The Community College for Sioux Falls offers select DSU programs, from certificate to master’s degrees. You can take classes online, during the day, or at night. Our programs are designed to fit your schedule, so you don’t have to give up your full-time job or other responsibilities.
