A lifetime of earnings starts when you invest in yourself and your future at SDSU. Today, more and more employers are seeking well–prepared graduates, and many jobs require, at minimum, a four–year degree. It’s no secret that the return on investment is greater for those with a four–year degree. Just how much greater? Think millions, not thousands.

And with schools and businesses across the country adjusting to current events, you might have some questions of your own about how South Dakota State University is responding to the current health crisis.
