What our Students are Saying…

“I made the decision to pursue a degree in Educational Administration at the University of South Dakota because of its status as a research institution, the availability of online classes and affordability.  My experience has been nothing but extraordinary.  The curriculum is designed to challenge students’ intellect by exposing them to the real issues of adult and higher education.  You will indeed be challenged – but you will be prepared for the real world.
