Regents increase tuition, fees 1% at South Dakota universities

Students in South Dakota’s public universities will pay an average of about $105 more for the upcoming academic year. The Board of Regents this week approved a tuition and mandatory fee hike of about 1%.

“Affordability for students and their families is a major consideration for us,” said Brian Maher, the board’s executive director. “Setting tuition and fees must be done with a mind to balancing student affordability against the real costs of providing education. A minimal 1 percent adjustment is consistent with those goals.”

On average, an in-state undergraduate student taking 30 credit hours next year will pay about $9,360 for tuition and mandatory fees, KOTVA-TV reported.
