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.

DSU Spring Commencement to be held October 4

May 5, 2020

The rescheduled Spring 2020 Commencement at Dakota State University is planned for Sunday, October 4, during the university’s Homecoming weekend. The original May 9 commencement was postponed in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Both spring and summer graduates will be recognized at the ceremony. 

“We identified several options when considering an alternative event to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates,” said President José-Marie Griffiths. “Ultimately it was the students themselves who chose this option, through a survey we distributed among all those who were scheduled to graduate.”  

Doors open at 1 p.m.; the commencement ceremony will begin in the DSU Fieldhouse at 2:00 p.m. 

The pandemic situation is proving to be a continually evolving situation. In the event that health and safety issues arise and the public event cannot be held, the university will hold a virtual commencement on October 4.
