Black Hills State University offers reduced tuition rates for all current and active military men and women enrolled in courses at the University Center-Rapid City (UC-RC).
The reduced tuition rate will begin in January 2015.
The Veterans' Services at BHSU are extended to current members and veterans of the United States Armed Forces as well as their dependents. Our staff will aid in researching and receiving education benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the State of South Dakota, as well as state/federal organizations. We are here to offer a place for independent study and a safe atmosphere where veterans can feel free to share military experiences.
At BHSU, we offer over 60 degree programs including associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees with options to participate in classes from multiple locations including Spearfish, Rapid City, Souix Falls, Yankton, and online. BHSU is a VA approved school, and a member of the Service Members Opportunity College consortium. BHSU is proud to have been named a Military Friendly School by the G.I. Jobs magazine every year since 2011.
The Veterans' Services office is located within the Student Success Center in Woodburn Hall.
