Academic Common Market States Pay In-State Tuition

Residents of the state of Tennessee and states within the Academic Common Market (ACM) pay in-state maintenance fees. Nonresidents of Tennessee and those outside the ACM taking online classes pay only $75 more per credit hour for maintenance and out-of-state tuition. An agreement among states and participating colleges and universities allows students to pursue degrees at UT on an in-state tuition basis. Through the Academic Common Market, the M.S. program is available to residents of the states of Arkansas, Delaware, Virginia, and West Virginia. For more information, contact Norma Harrington at (865) 974–3251.

Notes:
  • Distance education students do not pay Program & Services, Facilities, or Transportation fees unless they are enrolled in an on campus course.
  • Students are required to enroll according to their status in SIS. If an online course has two sections, campus students must register for the section designated for campus and distance education students must register for the section designated for DE. Campus students enrolled part-time for a given semester may be charged additional fees based on the number of hours enrolled. 
  • Fees for part-time students are pro-rated and calculated based on the number of credit hours enrolled.
