Common Market

Students within the Academic Common Market map get in-state tuition

The Academic Common Market is a tuition-savings program for college students in the 16-member states who want to pursue degrees that are not offered by their in-state institutions. Students can enroll in out-of-state institutions that offer their degree program and pay the institution's in-state tuition rates.

Residents of Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia can qualify for in-state tuition rates because none of these states offer a PGA accredited PGA Golf Management program.
