Academic Common Market (ACM)

The Academic Common Market (ACM) is a cooperative agreement for sharing educational programs and facilities, allowing residents of a participating state to pursue academic degree programs not offered in their home states without having to pay out-of-state tuition charges. The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) coordinates the activities of the Academic Common Market for the sixteen participating states, which include Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Participation in the Academic Common Market allows qualified students from selected states to pay in-state tuition while pursuing certain degree programs at The University of Mississippi. This arrangement is available only to students whose home states do not offer the designated program.

Eligibility for programs offered by The University of Mississippi is determined by the state in which the student resides. 

The University of Mississippi participates in the Academic Common Market in the following undergraduate degree programs:

All states and/or degree programs within the Academic Common Market are not necessarily approved at the undergraduate level at The University of Mississippi.  Student should use the SREB website to determine if particular states will certify admission to the programs in Geological Engineering and Forensic Chemistry.
