Famous for Mount Rushmore and its open terrain, South Dakota also is home to some top-notch colleges. South Dakota Board of Regents governs the state’s higher learning educational institutions; the largest being South Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota. Private schools, technical institutions, community colleges, and of course tribal colleges, round out the rest of South Dakota’s higher education structure. The list of the schools collectively offer a wide range of coursework ranging from undergraduate and graduate levels. Realizing the state’s wide open spaces make commuting difficult, most schools, public or private, have offered the majority of their programs via the internet. Online programs make it easy for individuals with hectic schedules to continue or begin furthering their education.
