Capital University Center

925 East Sioux Avenue, Pierre, SD 57501
(605) 773-2160

Founded in 1982, Capital University Center (CUC) became an institution of the South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR) in 2003.

Our students receive face-to-face instruction in the center of the state, more than 160 miles from the state's nearest public university campus. CUC works with all six of the SDBOR universities to provide undergraduate and graduate level degree and certificate programs in both face-to-face and online formats.

Because most CUC students are non-traditional, we are geared to helping them complete an academic program with evening, weekend, and hybrid classes. During the summer semester, we encourage traditional-age students in and around Pierre to join our classes at CUC and lighten their course loads during their on-campus semesters—or simply finish their degrees that much faster. We also offer non-credit seminars and adult education opportunities each fall and spring semester to continue our broad range of community education services for local citizens.

Thanks to the generous support of Wallace R. Halverson and donations from Jim and Susan Mollison, among others, Capital University Center is proud to now be offering central South Dakotans the same outstanding academic opportunities that we envisioned back in 1982 from a new, state-of-the-art facility here in Pierre.

Future Students

CUC offers day, evening, weekend, and online classes. You can go full-time, part-time, or one class at a time–and financial aid is available to qualified students with full-time and part-time class schedules.

You can start here and finish here , start here and finish there, or work on an online degree at any level. High school students can pick up college courses, too!

There are life-long learning choices available, too, if you want the knowledge and don't care about earning college credit.

Current Students

Our classes are scheduled at times to suit working students and our staff are here to help. Let our staff know if you are not finding the information you need on our website.

We can help with financial aid, choices in degree programs, CLEP credit, testing for online classes, and using your student accounts, among other things. Give us a call at 605-773-2160 if you have any questions!


CUC has been committed to our students since 1982. The faculty, staff, and advisory board are active in our community and hope to help education prosper in our area to meet our local needs.

CUC welcomes requests and proposals for furthering the academic opportunities here in central South Dakota and encourages our students to use education to pursue success where they live.

Lifelong Learning

Learning never stops! CUC provides many types of post-secondary education to our community.

In addition to the college classes offered as part of our degree programs, we have university courses available to non-degree seeking students and to special students.

We offer CLEP testing for college credit, dual-credit classes for high school students, and Drivers' Education, too.

And then there's our non-credit classes available online and face-to-face. Call us with questions: (605) 773-2160.
