South Dakota State Flag

South Dakota is a largely rural state in the Midwest. It attracts nearly three million visitors every year to its famous presidential sculpture, Mount Rushmore, in Black Hills National Forest, though regularly enjoys a population of just more than 800,000 people, giving it the fifth-lowest population density in the U.S. Six public universities serve the state, the largest of which is South Dakota State University in Brookings. Given its largely rural quality, online colleges in South Dakota offer a convenient option for those seeking higher education in less densely populated areas. Both private and public universities and colleges in South Dakota provide online education options. The South Dakota Board of Regents controls the six public South Dakota universities, and its Electronic University Consortium provides information on distance education, including training for educators and offered programs and financial aid resources. The University of South Dakota, for instance, offers more than 30 programs through three of its state-based locations. South Dakota State University has been offering off-campus education options for more than 80 years, more recently via online programs, of course, in programs at all degree levels. The state also boasts pioneers in online education. National American University has been offering online courses since the beginnings of the World Wide Web in 1996 in several academic and professional-oriented areas.
