I honestly chose the University of Memphis because it was far from home! It gave me a chance to be independent from my family, and has more than exceeded my expectations. I have become involved in projects and organizations that interest me, found a group of friends who will be lifelong, and explored a city that has a lot to offer.

What is the Academic Common Market?

Participation in the Academic Common Market allows qualified students from selected states to pay in-state tuition while pursuing certain degree programs at the University of Memphis. This arrangement is available only to students whose home states do not offer the designated program. Eligibility for programs offered by the U of M is determined by the state in which the student resides.  The program is open to both graduate and undergraduate students.

Search the Southern Regional Education Board web site to determine which programs are available in each home state.  The student must certify that they live in one of the 16 states that comprise SREB.  The student must also complete the admissions process at the University of Memphis.
