Children of Northern State University alumni 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 earned a degree from Northern State University.
  • 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!
