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 thirteen participating states, which include Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

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

Eligibility for programs offered by the University of Mississippi is determined by the state in which the student resides. Use the SREB website to determine if a particular state will certify admission to the programs in Southern Studies, Geological Engineering, or Forensic Chemistry.
