Children of Northern State University alumni (or another S.D. Board of Regents institution) may qualify to pay in-state tuition for their undergraduate degree.
It's easy to qualify for this Children of Alumni program:
  • The program is for incoming freshmen or transfer students who currently reside in a state other than South Dakota. Students qualify for the in-state tuition rate if one of their parents or legal guardian received a degree from Northern State University or another S.D. Board of Regents institution (BHSU, DSU, SDSMT, SDSU or USD).
  • Students must have a minimum ACT composite of 20 to qualify for the Children Of Alumni tuition rate. 
  • Students must earn a minimum of 30 credits and a GPA of 2.5 each academic year to retain this award.
  • Once students meet the requirements for admission, their tuition rate will be set at the resident rate rather than the non-resident rate, making a college degree from Northern even more affordable.
