More and more students are getting degrees from South Dakota public universities without ever stepping foot on the six traditional college campuses. Enrollment in online courses and at the state’s three university centers is up from five years ago, according to a study released recently to the Board of Regents. Regents’ executive director Jack Warner said he’s not surprised by the increases because the system is expanding access to adults who want to further their education. “We’re trying to make it as convenient as we can for them,” he said. “They’re increasingly motivated to get higher education degrees because they see it as a pathway to prosperity.”
