  • Academic Common Market provides in-state tuition for students to attend out-of-state colleges

    This year 123 Delaware students are attending out-of-state colleges and universities at in-state tuition rates thanks to the state’s participation in the Academic Common Market (ACM). More than 100 southern public colleges provide in-state tuition to eligible Delaware residents pursuing majors not offered at the University of Delaware or Delaware State University through the ACM. The ACM is a tuition-savings agreement among 15 states that are members of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). Public colleges in SREB states that elect to participate in the ACM select the baccalaureate and graduate-level degree programs they will offer. About 15 new programs were added this year. Professional degree programs such as pharmacy, law, dentistry and medicine are not part of the program.

Organizations that participate are eligible to receive reimbursements for meals served and administrative expenses.
