SD BOR Policy

Board of Regent housing policy (Housing 3:6, Section 1,A) as stated in the SDSM&T Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog and referenced below.

During the first two years from the time they were or would have been graduated from high school, all unmarried students who enroll in courses delivered on a main campus for six credit hours or more are required to enter into a housing agreement with the institution unless special permission to room elsewhere is received from the institution. Permission ordinarily shall be granted to students with dependent children or to students who reside full time during the academic year with parents or legal guardians. Students who have enrolled for twelve or more credits for four (4) semesters may be exempted from this agreement at the discretion of the institution.

If you are planning to live off-campus during your first or second year at SDSM&T, be sure you are exempt from this policy. To request an exemption, complete the on-line exemption request form to start the process.

Why??? National studies show that students who live on-campus during their first and second year of college do better academically and socially.  They typically have better grades and are more likely to graduate.  At SDSM&T, first and second year students who lived on campus during the past five years on average earned GPAs that were at least 0.1 points higher than first and second year students living off-campus.
