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.

Give a Gift

College can be hard, especially with the weight of financial burdens. But that's why a gift or donation of any kind can help. If you’re able to, we encourage you to give a gift in support of our students.


When one gives to Dakota State they become part of our Trojan family, whether that gift is large or small, whether they're an alumni, a community supporter, or business partner. Your gifts help DSU support the brightest and best students in fulfilling their potential, whatever their circumstances, regardless of their background or financial need.

Donations to the DSU Foundation go toward student scholarships and other educational opportunities that help students find success and finance their education. Your gift, large or small, will help ensure that students receive the same excellent academic experience that helped you get to where you are today. 

Ways to give

You can give a one-time gift online or set up a recurring payment. If you would rather give a donation by check or set up a legacy gift, the DSU Foundation will help you with other types of gifts.
