Reduced Tuition for Active Duty Military

Tuesday, October 14, 2014
The University Center-Rapid City has been approved to offer a pilot program with reduced tuition rates for all current and active military men and women enrolled in courses at the University Center-Rapid City (UC-RC).  The reduced tuition program, proposed by BHSU, was approved by the South Dakota Board of Regents today. The reduced tuition rate will begin in January 2015.

The reduced rate is $246.35 per credit hour. The federal government currently provides federal tuition assistance up to a maximum of $250 per credit hour to military students, so this reduced rate will cover the full cost of a military student’s education.

This tuition rate is applicable to all undergraduate classes offered face to face at the University Center-Rapid City, regardless of which institution offers them, for active duty military personnel.

BHSU to Host Annual Accounting Career Fair

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

We are excited to offer this opportunity to bring employers who need accounting students and graduates together with our accounting majors from both of our locations in Spearfish and Rapid City.

Here is a great chance to specifically connect with BHSU accounting students looking for internships and career opportunities in the field of accounting.  
Any accounting firm or company seeking to connect with or employ BHSU accounting students in internships or full time positions after graduation is welcome to attend. If you do not have current openings you are welcome to attend and network with our accounting majors for possible future employment.

Join us for a wonderful opportunity to meet and network with accounting professionals who are specifically looking for students majoring in accounting. Also take the time to learn about firms and jobs that you may not have previously considered.  
All junior and senior accounting majors are strongly encouraged to attend. Sophomores are welcome to attend as well for networking purposes. Students who RSVP by 9/15/14 will be excused from their classes during the career fair so they can attend and not worry about class conflicts.

Times and Locations
The event will serve students at BOTH of our BHSU locations.

Set up 12:30 – 1:00
Introductions and "Accounting Jam*" 1:00 – 1:30
