Psychologist Salaries in South Dakota - SD

Although the average annual salaries for psychologists in South Dakota are slightly higher than those of other states in the region, salaries are generally lower than the national average.  Salary lists for counseling, clinical, school and forensic psychologists are provided below for South Dakota’s largest cities.  Salaries tend to be highest at the capital city of Pierre for all four areas.  School psychologists tend to be in the highest demand nationwide, but whereas the national average annual salary for school psychologists is $60,000, a school psychologist in Pierre only makes $51,000, on average.  In South Dakota’s largest city, Sioux Falls, school psychologists only make about $47,000 annually on average. 


However, since the cost of living index tends to be lower in South Dakota than the national mean, these lesser annual salaries may not impact the financial success of psychologists in the state.
