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.

ADA accommodations

Everyone can learn at DSU

We want to give everyone the opportunity to learn, but we know that people learn in different ways. Reasonable accommodations vary from student to student and may include—but are not limited to—the following:

  • Permission to record lectures
  • Access to note-takers and readers
  • Extended time for testing
  • Audiobooks
  • A quiet test area
  • Lecture notes provided by the instructor
  • Interpreter services
  • Large-print materials
  • Braille materials
  • Use of a calculator
  • Use of formula and fact sheets
  • Use of dictation software for in-class writing assignments and essays

We'll work with you to find a solution that will help you succeed. We'll also assist you in the installation and training of assistive technology if needed.


We respect your privacy

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act are very clear in stating that disability-related information is to be treated with strict confidentiality. This is extremely important to individuals who may wish to access their right to accommodation while minimizing the risk of stigma sometimes associated with disability. At DSU, we work to protect your privacy, helping you learn with confidence.
