    Visit our campus in person

    Our visit options are engineered just for you, whether you're ready to explore South Dakota Mines in person, or want to see South Dakota Mines from the comfort of home.

    I'm accepted for what? 

    Keep an eye on your New Student Checklist!!

    Beginning in November, high school seniors accepted to South Dakota Mines will have an online checklist to help them prepare for their first semester on campus.

    From the checklist, students will activate important accounts including their new Hardrocker email - campus offices will start using it right away to share information and updates.

    February 1st: Students will be able to fill out a survey which will let the Registrar's Office know to create their fall semester schedule.

    February 13th:  The housing application opens for fall housing--be sure to have your housing deposit ready to save your place in line for housing style preference.
