General Studies Associates Degree
In partnership with Northern State University, Huron Community Campus will be offering an Associate's Degree in General Studies. Earn the entire degree while living in the Huron area. All General Education courses will be charged at a rate of $40 per credit hour. The same courses offered at South Dakota public universities are $277 per credit hour. This degree program is a federal financial aid eligible program and will bring many options for students who enroll in the program. Students can use classes from this program to obtain a bachelor's degree from one of the many on-line programs we have available, or they can continue their education at a different college/university after completing some or all of the degree.

Don't miss this opportunity - HCC will not offer this program again for at least five years.

Other organizations that helped make this program possible include the Huron University Foundation, Huron Community Foundation, and the United Way Heartland Region.
Two-year Registered Nursing Program
The nursing program at DWU reflects the institution’s commitment to service and leadership within the region. The associate degree nursing program provides a curriculum designed to prepare the graduate for general staff nursing positions in hospitals, long-term care facilities and other community agencies. Students accepted into the two-year nursing curriculum, available in Mitchell and Huron, can complete the required 71 credit hours in the nursing program within two years and two summer sessions. Courses for the required 25 nursing credits in the one-year LPN-RN curriculum, offered on the Southeast Technical Institute campus in Sioux Falls, are designed for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) to enhance knowledge of human health needs and nursing interventions while developing management of care skills needed by the registered nurse (RN) in the current health setting. Upon successful completion of the program and upon full payment of all money due to the university, the graduate will receive the associate of arts degree and will have satisfied the academic requirements necessary for eligibility to take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) for licensure as an RN.
