South Dakota is reaching out to potential college students living in Nebraska.
The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved a policy to end out-of-state tuition for residents of neighboring states. Students from Nebraska as well as other neighboring states will pay the same tuition as South Dakota students.
It is being called the South Dakota Advantage program. It will allow first-year and transfer students from Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, Iowa, and even Colorado to pay the same tuition as South Dakota residents.
South Dakota already charges in-state tuition to those living in Minnesota under a reciprocity agreement with state. The new rates go into effect in the summer of next year.
