Paying for College

Here at Sitting Bull College, we won’t let a price tag stand in your way! We know the importance of education, and our mission is to provide affordable education.  We’re here to help navigate your options to pay for college. When you review our cost of attendance, remember that 99% of our students receive financial aid through a combination of scholarships, grants, or work-study.  If you are a recent high school graduate or GED recipient, you may be eligible for a one-year tuition waiver under the “Build Your Brighter Future Scholarship.”

Our financial aid team will work with you to develop a financial plan to ensure you graduate debt free.  For assistance contact our office at with any questions you may have.
