ACM Eligibility Requirements

Students may apply for ACM eligibility if you meet the following criteria:

  1. You are a Virginia resident.
  2. You are enrolled full-time in a degree program available to Virginia residents.
  3. You have a letter of acceptance (conditional or provisional acceptances are not eligible) into the specific program of study offered at the out-of-state institution and this program is listed in the current Virginia ACM inventory and available to Virginia residents.
    Note: All letters must be on institution letterhead and include the major and effective term/year (transcripts and proof of registration are not acceptable).

Students who have been "provisionally" admitted into an ACM major or who must complete coursework before they are fully admitted to the program are NOT eligible for ACM tuition benefits until they are formally accepted into the major.

If you meet the criteria, the next step is to complete the Application to Participate in the Academic Common Market (ACM).
