About DSU

Since achieving full university status in 1987, Dickinson State University has made a goal of becoming one of the premier postsecondary institutions in the Great Plains. With a progressive mindset, numerous academic opportunities, and an enriching student life, it seems that DSU is well on its way toward this goal.

The university is comprised of two colleges: the College of Education, Business, and Applied Sciences, and the College of Arts and Sciences. These colleges combine for about a dozen academic departments and over 75 concentrations. Though there are many subjects to choose from, many DSU students concentrate in education and agriculture.

In line with its progressive attitude, Dickinson State embraces multiculturalism in its student body. The Cultural Diversity Tuition Waver allows students of historically underrepresented ethnicities to get a significant discount, up to full tuition. Similarly, the Global Awareness Tuition Waiver assists international students with tuition fees.

DSU’s Strom Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation works to promote local business growth. Website creation, marketing plans and research, and project management are among the services that the Strom Center offers. The Center helps to stimulate the local economy, and connects Dickinson State with North Dakota businesses.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

I am 26 with a family and decided to go to school to be able to have a career rather than just jumping from job to job. The options for employment are endless for a student that wants a pt of ft job or a family that one individual is going to work and support while the other goes back to school. I went to this school because it is very affordable, convent, and had my degree. I do wish it offered more options for degrees.


Overall Rating

I have yet to experience this school, but as a prospective student that has three years experience with a different accredtted state university, my lessons have been many. Restrict night life unless all class work is completed or it will not likely be completed enough to earn the desired grade. Make as many friends and connections as possible. A person never knows when they will need a helping hand. Allow yourself to know your professors acedemically. If they know your first name then you will be more likely to be understood if you are having a bad day and this will allow for a possible make up assignment when grades are not quite where they need to be. Last but not least, never say, "I can't." As long as those two words never pass your lips, then anything is possible.
