Admissions & SD Residency Appeals

Admissions Appeal

Your academic success is one of our top priorities.  If you were denied admission to BHSU and would like your application to be reconsidered, you may petition for admission through the undergraduate admission appeal process.

All admission appeal items that are submitted must be typed. Transfer or returning students who are appealing should complete the Transfer/Returning Admission Appeal Process, and first-time freshmen students appealing should complete the Freshmen Admission Appeal Process.

SD Residency Appeal

To appeal for residency in the State of South Dakota, first, read to the South Dakota Board of Regents Policy. If you feel you meet the requirements, print out the Application for Resident Status form. Submit the application plus all supporting documents to the Office of Admissions:
