Attention families and prospective college students: There is a way to earn a four-year degree in the Black Hills for about $15,000. However, this offer is for “dedicated students.”
That’s according to Black Hills State University. School officials announced Thursday its “Early Jacket” program will help students enrolling in dual credit college courses while still in high school.
To net the cost-saving benefits, the BHSU news release said students will need to earn Early Jacket, Buzz Bonus and South Dakota Opportunity scholarships awarded for high school academic achievements and maintain top-notch grades at BHSU.
“It is a very precise outline that has to be followed. If you follow the plan, you will see significant cost savings,” BHSU President Dr. Tom Jackson said in the release.
