Important Parent Information: 

  • Consent FERPA – in order for SDSM&T to discuss a student’s account or grades with anyone other than the student, a Consent FERPA must be signed by the student each Academic year.  The form must be signed in the presence of authorized school personnel in either the Cashier’s Office or the office of Registrar and Academic Services (RAS).

  • Payment Due Dates and Payment Plan Options – All account balances are due in full, or payment arrangements (Payment Plans or Financial Aid Deferments) made, by the final due date listed for each term.  Payment Plans are provided by an external vendor (NelNet).  Please review their open enrollment dates and Payment Plan options early to avoid missing out on the Plan you want.

    For questions about the Consent FERPA, Payment Due Dates or Payment Plan Options, please contact the Student Accounts/Cashiering Office at (605)394-2372, email:
