Academic Common Marketplace


Are you interested in a particular major, but your home state does not offer it? The Academic Common Market may be able to help you.

The Academic Common Market (ACM) is an agreement among the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) that enables students to pursue out-of-state college degrees at discounted tuition rates if a student’s home state schools do not offer a particular degree.

States

Students from the following states may be eligible for in-state tuition rates for select programs through the Academic Common Market.

Alabama Arkansas Deleware
Florida Georgia Louisiana
Maryland Mississippi North Carolina
Oklahoma South Carolina Tennessee
Texas Virginia West Virginia

ACM-eligible Programs at WKU

The ACM-eligibility of WKU programs depends on each student’s home state’s program offerings. Additionally, the list of eligible programs grows as students request ACM-eligibility for majors that had not previously been considered. The following majors are just some of those for which students have been considered for ACM-eligibility:

Advertising Arabic Language Broadcasting
Chinese Film Folk Studies
Geology Geographic information Science Health Information Management
International Affairs Meteorology Musical Theatre
Organizational Leadership Photojournalism Pop Culture Studies

 

ACM Certification Procedures

Students interested in pursuing a major through the ACM will need to be accepted to WKU for their major of interest and then complete a certification process through their home state’s higher education department.  Students should contact WKU Academic Common Market Coordinator Alyson Manley at alyson.manley@wku.edu for assistance. The SREB ACM page can be found here: http://www.sreb.org/academic-common-market.
