The Regional Contract Program (RCP) is a tuition-savings program offered by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) especially for students in the health professions. It enables qualified students to pursue a first-professional health degree at selected out-of-state institutions, yet pay in-state tuition and fees at public institutions, and reduced tuition at private institutions. Students who live in a state with access to the RCP program and want to earn a degree in dentistry, medicine, optometry, osteopathic medicine, podiatry and veterinary medicine are eligible to participate. States save the high costs of creating their own health programs
and expand the number of professionals to serve their citizens in these specialized fields, and students gain the opportunity to prepare for these professions at reduced tuition rates. SREB is the fiscal agent for the program
and handles administrative duties for participating states.
