A Note from BSC President Doug Jensen

Dr. Doug Jensen
Dr. Doug Jensen
Welcome to Bismarck State College, North Dakota's Polytechnic Institution, where we offer opportunities for you to discover what's next. I invite you to explore our website to learn about our mission and vision, our academic programs and our many events and activities.

This is the place that transforms dreamers into doers. Where hands-on learning leads to higher-wage earning. Where deep knowledge is gained and deep friendships are formed. Where you’re close to home and well within budget. Now is the time to follow your dreams and do what you were destined to do.
At BSC, we are rallied around helping you and we’ll go above and beyond to help you achieve your goals. 
As a student, your goal may be to attend for a semester and then transfer on to a four year college or university; perhaps you are focused on graduating with a technical degree and moving into a promising career in healthcare, energy or cybersecurity; maybe you are looking for a couple of classes that will enhance your skills. Whatever your path, the people of BSC are here to help you get started, stay on track and meet your educational goals.

BSC has provided a high quality, affordable college education to the region for more than 75 years. Whether you are a prospective or continuing student, or a business looking for training, we are here to help you succeed.
I invite you to visit our beautiful campus overlooking the Missouri River. You will find a place bursting with energy – from dynamic faculty to new buildings to big ideas. In addition, our top quality online classes provide you with all the benefits of BSC as well as a flexible schedule.

I encourage you to learn more about BSC. I’m available to talk (call 701-224-5431) or better yet, visit us and discover how BSC can help you learn, grow, succeed. Let's do this!
Thank you,
Dr. Doug Jensen
BSC President
