Academic Common Market
It Pays to Be Unique!
You may qualify for in-state tuition at MTSU if you are enrolled in an academic major not offered in your home state.
Overview and Eligibility
The Academic Common Market (ACM) is a tuition savings program which allows residents of participating states to qualify for in-state tuition for unique academic majors not offered in their home state. The ACM is coordinated by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB).
Who is eligible?
You must be a resident of a member state of the SREB to qualify for the ACM:
*Florida and Texas participate in the ACM at the graduate level only.
North Carolina does not currently participate in ACM at any level.
Which programs are approved for the ACM?
Many MTSU programs are already approved for ACM - you can find a list of programs by state here. Other programs may be eligible for approval if they are not currently offered in your home state.
