Partner Universities

Black Hills State University partners with a number of universities from around the world. Partner Universities offer the true "exchange" experience. No third parties, tuition paid to Black Hills State, and direct contact with program personnel make choosing from an exchange partner a great option.

BHSU has hosted hundreds of students from our partner universities and many BHSU students have reciprocated for semesters and academic years as well.
