Programs for High School Students

High School Dual Credit
The South Dakota High School Dual Credit Program (HSDC) allows South Dakota high school juniors and seniors to take college-level classes and receive both college and high school credit. All HSDC courses are designed to fulfill both high school and college requirements.
Northern State University offers several general education classes that qualify for High School Dual Credit. Qualified students can take HSDC courses on the NSU main campus in Aberdeen, at the Huron Community Campus, or online. 
For information on the High School Dual Credit Program and how it works, as well as a schedule of available classes, go to SDMyLife.
