State ACM Websites and Contacts
***Please contact your state ACM coordinator for application status updates***

Please note that submitting an inquiry through this site is not the same as submitting an ACM application. To apply for ACM status, you must complete and submit your home state’s ACM application to be certified as a resident. This inquiry only notifies your state contact of your interest in the ACM program.

Notice: As a result of the General Assembly of North Carolina’s Appropriations Act of 2011, North Carolina no longer participates in the Academic common Market. 


Jeffrey Grove
Program Specialist, State Strategies

Jeffrey Grove joined the Southern Regional Education Board in 2006 as a research associate to the state services team, where he brings nearly 20 years of experience working on issues of education policy and practice in the public education sector. He has contributed to numerous editions of SREB’s Legislative Report, addressed inquiries on education policies and legislation from policymakers and their staff in SREB states, and authored reports and briefs on current education issues.


Legislative Action

SREB tracks and reports on actions on education issues by state lawmakers across the SREB region. Based on research and meetings with state leaders during their legislative sessions, issues of the Legislative Report detail recent governors’ proposals, bills and funding actions.  

Legislators, governors’ staffs and other policy-makers often turn to SREB for the latest information on education issues. 


SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program

Increasing Faculty Diversity

More than one-third of America’s college students are people of color. But racial and ethnic minorities make up only small fractions of college faculty. Nationwide, about 5 percent of faculty are African-American, about 3 percent are Hispanic and about 1 percent are Native American. The SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program is working to change that.


Academic Common Market

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

Is a degree program you’d like to pursue not available in your state? Is out-of state tuition a barrier to a major offered at a college in another state? 

You’re in the right place. For more than 35 years, SREB’s Academic Common Market has enabled students to pursue out-of-state college degrees at in-state tuition rates, through agreements among the states and colleges and universities.
