South Dakota state employees get tuition break at more sites

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - State employees who take courses at South Dakota's three off-campus public university centers will soon get the same tuition break as those taking classes on campus.

State workers enrolled in courses delivered on campus at 1 of the state's six public universities have been receiving a 50% tuition break. Beginning this summer, the tuition break will also be available to state employees taking courses at Capital University Center in Pierre, University Center in Sioux Falls and University Center in Rapid City.

Jack Warner, executive director of the South Dakota Board of Regents, says the change is expected to encourage more state employees to continue their educations at the off-campus university centers.

The break reduces tuition about $67 per undergraduate credit hour and $101 per graduate credit hour.
