LSIS – Costs

  • Great News! LSI in 2018 is more affordable than ever!


    The Lakota Language Consortium has negotiated NO COST credits and CEU’s for

    LSI-South participants. Thanks to a Lakota language grant, OLC will also provide

    free on-site lunches and waive registration fees this summer.


    Participants will pay for course materials (pre-order during online registration).

    Courses at the Lakota Summer Institute can either be taken for college credit or as Continuing Education Units (CEUs). LSI-South classes are administered by Oglala Lakota College. Participants may earn college credit and apply this towards Associate’s degrees, Bachelor’s degrees and Master’s degrees. There is NO COST for credits or CEU’s at this year’s Institute.


    Oglala Lakota College will also accept transfer credit from previous LSI’s hosted at Sitting Bull College and our new LSI-North partner, United Tribes Technical College, for teachers pursuing a Lakota Teaching Certificate. Course equivalencies for all LSI coursework, past and future, will be established by the Lakota Language Consortium and our partner institutions in early 2018.
