The Academic Common Market
The Academic Common Market (UNF-ACM) is a cooperative tuition-reduction agreement among 16 states that participate in the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB): Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Under this program, qualified students from states outside Florida may apply through their own state's ACM coordinator for reduced tuition rates at UNF while pursuing programs that are not available in their home state’s university system. In essence, qualified students are considered “in-state” residents during the time they are pursuing their specified degree program, therefore making them eligible for reduced tuition rates and other opportunities afforded residents who attend the institution.
For more detailed information about the application process, including an ACM contact in each of the participating states, see the SREB-ACM website. If you still have questions about the process, e-mail them to the Graduate School.
