How We Ranked South Dakota Esthetician Programs

The selected esthetician schools are accredited or state-approved to provide esthetician programming according to the licensing requirements in the state. We researched schools that qualified as Title IV institutions and had an average of at least 25 students enrolled in the most recent 3 years of available data (2019 - 2021). These schools are all within 50 miles of a major city center and had a weighted 3-year average graduation rate (2018, 2019, and 2020, the most recent publicly available as of press time) greater than 50%. After filtering for those requirements, we sorted the remaining programs by the highest weighted average graduation rate to determine the top 2 esthetician schools in South Dakota.

Graduation rate and student enrollment data are from the U.S. Department of Education's Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) reports. Certain schools may be omitted from the Beauty Schools Directory ranking, particularly if their IPEDS self-reported data are missing key information. Many excellent educational institutions may as a result not be represented on these rankings of top esthetician schools.
