Academic Common Market

As a member of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) UMBC participates in the Academic Common Market (ACM.)

The ACM is a tuition-savings program that operates on the premise that if public institutions (not including private institutions) in a student’s home state do not offer a degree program major (undergraduate or graduate) that a student intends on pursuing, then the student may attend a participating ACM out-of-state institution offering the degree of interest through the ACM and be granted a waiver of out-of-state tuition charges.

Participation in the Academic Common Market requires approval from your home state of residence and the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC). For more information click here.
