University System of Georgia

ACM Logo

The Academic Common Market (ACM), which is administered by the Southern Regional Education app,򾺲app (SREB), allows for Georgia residents who are enrolled in specific programs at out-of-state institutions to be charged only the applicable in-state tuition by the institution in which the student is enrolled. Only programs that are listed in the Georgia Academic Common Market Inventory (see “Search for Qualifying Georgia Academic Common Market Programs,” below) are eligible for participation in the Georgia Academic Common Market. Georgia is not accepting requests to add new programs to its Academic Common Market Inventory. Eligible programs are programs that were identified as being at least 51 percent different in curricular content than programs offered in Georgia. Participating states are Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia (Florida and Texas participate only at the graduate level).

The list of programs approved for participation in the Georgia Academic Common Market is subject to change without notice.
