Created in 1939 in response to a community need for a local college, BSC was initially known as Bismarck Junior College. The first students started classes on Sept. 4, 1939, on the third floor of Bismarck High School with 107 full- and part-time students and 12 instructors. By the late 1940s, a new location became increasingly urgent as college enrollments soared with returning GIs.
Today, Bismarck State College is the third-largest institution in the North Dakota University System with 4,000 traditional college students and 22,000 community members involved in continuing education and training. Our students choose theirs beyond. For more than 75 years, BSC has proudly helped them get there.
