Academic Common Market
The Academic Common Market is a tuition-savings program for college students who live in the 16 states that are members of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), a nonprofit education organization. The ACM allows students to pay in-state tuition to study in a program not offered in their home state, provided they have been accepted into an approved degree program at a participating ACM institution and are certified as residents of a participating state. Eligible universities are four-year public institutions located in one of the 16 SREB states.
How ACM Works
- Research programs currently eligible for Tennessee residents using SREB’s search application.
- If your program of interest is already eligible, apply to the program. Once accepted, you can apply for residency certification.
- If your program of interest is NOT eligible and there are not already programs at public institutions within Tennessee, you can nominate a program for inclusion in the ACM.
