VERMILLION, S.D. (WNAX) – Encouraging more out of state residents to attend universities in South Dakota is part of a new program authorized by the Board of Regents.
USD President Sheila Gestring says those students can pay in-state tuition rates.
A massive building boom is underway in Vermillion to help attract those students. Gestring says there is a big expansion in off campus housing.
Gestring says that shows confidence in long term growth at USD.
Tuition will rise 3.4 percent for fall classes.
