State Coordinators 2008

Students wishing to pursue study in uncommon programs not available within their home state may be able to take advantage of the Academic Common Market. This is a program whereby legal residents of 16 southern states can attend specified out-of-state graduate programs without paying out-of-state tuition; selected baccaleaureate programs are also available to residents of 13 of these states. (Florida, North Carolina, and Texas provide access to selected graduate out-of-state programs only.)

You are visitor number since October 3, 1996.

Information on degree programs included in each state in the Academic Common Market is available by contacting the Southern Regional Education Board (see address below)

Residents of these states who are accepted for admission into selected out-of-state programs may enroll on an in-state tuition basis. To qualify, an applicant must (1) be accepted into a program to which his or her state has made arrangements to send its students, and (2) submit proof to the coordinator in the state of legal residence.

If you find that any of the information listed below is incorrect, please send corrections to acm-rcp@sreb.org.
