The Tennessee Board of Regents has approved in-state tuition for students living in six bordering Kentucky counties to increase access to higher education for these geographic areas: Clinton, Cumberland, McCreary, Monroe, Wayne, and Whitley

The Academic Common Market is an interstate agreement between southern states for sharing academic programs not readily available in the home state. Participating states allow residents who qualify for admission to enroll in specific programs in other states to pay at the In-State rate in the state where the program is offered. Students who are participating in another program which covers out-of-state tuition are not eligible.

To be considered, you must (1) apply and be accepted for admission into a program which your home state has obtained access for its residents through the Academic Common Market. (2) Obtain certification of residency from the Common Market Coordinator in your home state.

Programs Eligible via SREB website as of: 9/10/2008
