The Academic Common Market

Because not every state's public universities offer all of the degree programs of interest to its residents, the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) developed the Academic Common Market thirty years ago, to allow its member states to make cooperative agreements, so that their residents could pursue their studies in a nearby state while paying in-state fees. The SREB is comprised of sixteen southern states, from Deleware and Maryland in the northeast to Texas in the west.

Due to such agreements between states, residents of Delaware--a state in which public universities do not currently offer a B.A. major in the academic study of religion--are able to enroll at the University of Alabama to pursue their major in Religious Studies, without paying out-of-state tuition.

The University of Alabama is the only institution in the state of Alabama that offers a B.A. major in the academic study of religion.
