Back to School

It’s not just for kids!

Buying school supplies, getting on schedules, and gearing up for a new year isn’t just for kids anymore. BHSU-RC, formerly the University Center–Rapid City, is now offering additional programs that can be completed fully in Rapid City beginning August 24.

Providing accessible, high quality education to working professionals, parents, military women and men, and anyone looking to complete a degree without having to commute or move is what this university is all about.

BHSU-RC provides flexible scheduling options and several student support services such as free tutoring, academic advising, financial aid counseling, and more. Visit for your Rapid City program options.

The decision to return to school is never easy. Not sure you can do it? Many others are taking the first step…enrollment of nontraditional students is up 30% to 40% in recent years.

Some common reasons for the surge in education among this population include:

• A change in career (often due to job loss)

• A desire to improve job skills (leading to more pay)

• A life transition (such as divorce)

• Personal enrichment

Here’s a fact: The more education you get, the more your professional life will benefit. And the benefits are multifold.
