What to Expect

Mapping Your Future is a non-profit organization dedicated to student success. By working closely with the South Dakota Education Access Foundation of the South Dakota Community Foundation, this service helps students and families in the state achieve their higher education goals. We also offer educational tools that guidance counselors and financial aid professionals can use in serving their communities.

Here's what you'll find:


Your high school years may be the most exciting and important ones you will spend in school.


Learn more about the higher education opportunities in South Dakota by visiting the websites for the schools, colleges, and universities in the state.


Whether you're considering higher education for yourself or starting to plan for the education of your kids, understanding the financial aid process is the first step to meeting your education goals.


The college years are very exciting times - exercising independence, meeting new friends, experiencing new things, and preparing for the future. When you are experiencing college life, make sure to keep your future in mind as well.
