Sinte Gleska University’s Fall 2020 student enrollment has exceeded a thousand students. On the SGU campus located in Mission, over nine hundred students enrolled in classes. There was a total of one hundred and fifty students enrolled at our additional locations located on the Lower Brule and Ihanktowan (Yankton) reservation campuses.
Welcome students on your new pathway to be a part of SGU. Also, wopila tanka (big thank you) to our students for your patience, stamina and determination during the university’s record registration and enrollment process. You are on your way to a unique educational experience that will greatly enhance your life.
Also, wopila tanka to the university’s administration, staff and faculty for their creative planning for students for the Fall 2020 semester. All students were given incentives such as a scholarship which offered free tuition and fees, a free laptop, and stipends to assist with their monthly internet bill, and groceries.
Our on-line virtual learning method allows our students to attend classes through the use of their computers/technology from their homes. When asked why students enrolled this semester, some of the reasons cited were: the free tuition, free computer, or the ability to complete classes virtually. Some of our students travel distances up to two hours from our campus, so virtual learning was a big plus for them.
Sinte Gleska University continues our endeavor in assisting students with book purchases and child care. Many do not have the resources available to purchase books, and they are not eligible for PELL. Your continued and generous support allows Sinte Gleska University’s mission to sustain our cultural identity, promote dialogue, value diversity and build a healthy nation.
