What is my secondary email address?
Your secondary email in most cases is the email address you included on your application to South Dakota State University. Also could be the email you received your acceptance letter or any other correspondence from the university.
How can I update my secondary email address?
Students can fill out to following form in order to update their secondary email address https://www.sdstate.edu/sites/default/files/campus/records/upload/changeaddressform.pdf
