How to Apply

Make it happen

Ready to make the move to DSU? Here's what you need to know.

1) Complete the undergraduate application

You'll be asked to list basic information about yourself, your previous school(s), as well as your GPA, standardized test scores, extracurriculars, and any awards you've earned. You'll also write a personal statement. There's a $20 application fee, and you'll need to send your college transcripts.

Let's get started

2) Send your transcripts 

Request that your official transcripts be sent directly to us at:

DSU Admission
820 N. Washington Ave.
Madison, SD 57042

3) Get a transcript evaluation

Once you have applied and been accepted, contact us before you register for classes. Our Registrar's office will prepare a transfer evaluation based on your official transcripts indicating course equivalencies met by your prior work. You'll also get a list of remaining requirements for your degree program. Transfer coordinators are available at both campuses and for online learners.
