North Dakota's United Tribes Technical College plans to open a new learning center in downtown Rapid City.
Officials from the Bismarck college made the announcement on Thursday in Rapid City.
School officials say the new technical learning center will be located on the National American University campus and could be ready for students in time for the 2013 fall semester.
UTTC has an enrollment of about 1,400 students. Its Bismarck campus offers two- and four-year degree programs and online courses.
College spokesman Phil Baird says Rapid City-area students could have the opportunity to tap into those online programs as early as this summer.
