SD Schools Plan To Help Adults Complete Degrees
June 25, 2010, 7:18 AM
South Dakota's public university system has developed a new program aimed at helping students who have already earned a lot of college credits resume their studies and get a degree.
The new bachelor of general studies degree is available starting this summer at Black Hills State University, Dakota State University, Northern State University and the University of South Dakota. It also is available at off-campus centers in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City.
Board of Regents director Jack Warner says the new degree program can help increase the number of college graduates in South Dakota. He says many adults have earned a significant number of college credits but never finished their degrees.
