Tech institute tuition and state fees set for 2018-19


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The South Dakota Board of Technical Education approved 2018-19 state tuition and fees at the state’s four technical institutes at its meeting today. The overall cost per credit hour will be $157. Students will pay $116 per credit hour in state tuition, which is a $2 per credit hour increase. The following state fees will hold steady:

 

  • Facility fee: $35 per credit hour
  • Maintenance and repair: $5 per credit hour
  • Postsecondary transition fee*: $1 per credit hour
    • *Postsecondary transition fees are used to support staff and activities designed to assist students in the transition to postsecondary education. This fee was formerly referred to as the technology fee.

“The leaders of our state technical institutes recognize the importance of affordability for students,” said Nick Wendell, executive director of the South Dakota Board of Technical Education. “While tuition will go up slightly in 2018-19, the increase adopted by the board today is smaller than has occurred in each of the past five years.”
