The Academic Common Market. 1975-76.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The Academic Common Market is an interstate agreement among Southern states for sharing academic programs. Participating states are able to make arrangements for their residents who qualify for admission to enroll in specific programs in other states on an in-state tuition basis. The initial arrangements have been limited to unusual graduate programs. The Common Market concept recognizes that it is impractical to attempt development of programs in every field of knowledge--especially since there already exist in each Southern state programs, not offered in some of the others, capable of accommodating additional students. Through the sharing of such programs, the Market will assist in eliminating unnecessary duplication and increasing availability and access to programs necessary in meeting the educational needs of citizens in the participating states. The graduate opportunities available to residents of Southern states through the Academic Common Market are listed in this document, state-by-state. As a result of arrangements worked out by the participating states, students entering these programs through the Market will not be required to pay out-of-state tuition fees. This information is followed by program notes containing brief program descriptions and addresses to which inquiries about admission to programs should be sent. (Author/PG)
