Bachelor Degree Completion Options

Build on Your Associate Degree or Diploma

Spending years at a four-year institution isn’t the only way to obtain a bachelor’s degree. Southeast Technical College has articulation agreements with some of the top four-year institutions in the region, providing students with a high-quality, cost-effective pathway to a bachelor’s degree.  

When you start your post-secondary education at Southeast Technical College and continue your education by transferring to a university, you won’t have to spend unnecessary time studying the concepts you already know, and in many cases, you can retain most – if not all – of your credits. Plus, you’ll spend much less money completing your first two years at Southeast Tech – that's a smart investment! 

Transferrable General Education Courses

The South Dakota boards of Technical Education (BOTE) and Regents (BOR) have collaborated to offer students a seamless transition of general education credits between Southeast Technical College and Board of Regents schools. General education courses provide a knowledge base and set the foundation for lifelong learning.

Students that have completed transferrable courses under this agreement will not need to repeat courses or lose credit if they choose to further pursue a bachelor’s degree at a BOR institution.
