Academic Common Market
Study in a specialized field at an out-of-state college. Pay in-state tuition rates.

What is the Academic Common Market?
- The Academic Common Market is a tuition-savings program for college students in 15 SREB states, who want to pursue degrees that are not offered by their in-state institutions. Students can enroll in out-of-state institutions that offer their degree program and pay the institution’s in-state tuition rates. More than 1,900 undergraduate and graduate programs are available.
This innovative SREB program combines the tuition benefits of the Academic Common Market with the distance learning capacity of the Electronic Campus. This initiative makes selected programs available at in-state tuition and through distance learning.
