Transcripts: Ask your high school to send your transcript to the Enrollment Service Center (address above).

Take the ACT or SAT test: (Waived if student is 22 years of age or over.) You do not need your ACT/SAT scores when you apply; just make sure they are sent to the Enrollment Service Center in Vermilion when you get the results. Or better yet, list Black Hills State University (ACT Code # 3904/SAT Code # 6042) as one of the universities to receive your ACT/SAT scores and they will be sent directly. If you do not have ACT/SAT results at the time of registration or you are over 21 years of age and have not taken the ACT/SAT test in the past five years, you will need to take the ACCUPLACER Placement Exams for Math and English. Call the Admissions Office at 605-642-6343 to arrange for ACCUPLACER testing.
