Transfer & Readmission Students
If you've previously attended any of the South Dakota public universities you've got lots of options to finish your degree with the help of Capital City Campus. If you've taken any classes from SDSU, USD, DSU, NSU, BHSU or SDSM&T, you can earn a degree from any one of them.
Start by Selecting a Degree Program
After being out of school for a while you’ll need to choose a degree program to begin again, perhaps in the same field or maybe something new. If you'd like to stay in Pierre you'll want to select degree options within our Finish Here or Start Here, Finish Online programs. If you plan to head to a campus after finishing a semester or two here, consider any of the South Dakota public university degree programs that allow you to Start Here, Finish There.
If you're unsure of the direction you'd like to take your degree, complete the Ready Adult Informational Questionaire. This is a great resource for students who want to finish their degrees and are not quite sure where to begin.
Browse our Program Catalog to find an option that meets your goals and interests.
Apply for Admission
If you've attended a South Dakota Regental University, discontinued enrollment, and now seek readmission, you can restart your college career. Contact the university offering the degree program of your choice for information about how to apply.
If you haven't attended a South Dakota public university, but have college credit elsewhere and would like to graduate from a South Dakota university, contact the university offering the degree program of your choice for information about how to apply.
Additional Items Potentially Needed
