Tuition and Fees by Degree Program

(Based on FY 16 Tuition and Fees)


The following table provides an estimate only of the total in-state tuition and fees for each field of study at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. The amounts listed for each year in college are based on current Fiscal year 2016 (2015-2016 academic year) rates for tuition, mandatory fees and any special fees associated with the program you are interested in pursuing. Because of the uncertainty of future changes to tuition and fee rate, your actual costs will vary due to rate increases, if you have to take remedial coursework, repeat a class or you decide to change your major.

Costs for room and board, books and supplies, Tablet PC rental and other personal and miscellaneous expenses are not reflected in the table. Information regarding campus housing is available on our Residence Life website and available meal plans are listed on our Campus Dish website.
