DE Residents: Get a B.S. in Materials at UMD, Pay In-State Tuition!
Undergraduate students living in the state of Delaware can now pay in-state tuition to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the A. James Clark School of Engineering, University of Maryland, thanks to the program's approval by the Southern Regional Education Board's (SREB) Academic Common Market.
The SREB Academic Common Market helps students from participating states pursue degrees not offered by public schools in their own states by attending an out-of-state public university that does, by allowing them to pay in-state tuition. The program makes it possible for students whose academic choices would otherwise be limited by higher out-of-state tuition costs obtain the education and degrees they want. Students must be a resident of one of SREB's 16 participating states, select an approved program available to their home states, and meet residency and admissions requirements.
"We're really excited to be able to offer this opportunity to prospective students from Delaware," says MSE Professor and Chair Robert M. Briber. "It's a great way for them to get a more affordable degree from a highly-ranked public school in a great location. A degree in materials science and engineering can lead to many different career paths, and job opportunities and starting salaries are good. We've got an excellent program here that includes smaller class sizes, research opportunities for undergraduates, state-of-the-art labs, and specialization areas including a minor in nanotechnology."
