Outside New York State Outside of New York, the privately run Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) has a financial-arrangement structure that is somewhat similar to that found in New York’s statutory colleges. BCM’s Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) program charges in-state Texas residents a lower tuition rate than that charged to non-Texan residents. This arrangement dates from 1969, and was fostered by the state of Texas realizing, at the time, that it needed more physicians, coupled with Baylor University's awareness of this need and its trying to help alleviate it.

Baylor University’s (BU's) medical school, which had been part of BU since 1903, became an autonomous entity in 1969 and adopted the aforementioned tuition dichotomy at that time. The state of Texas’ support of BCM is just to allay the cost of tuition for in-state students, and the state does not assist BCM with significant ongoing funding for research or outreach/extension purposes. The divestiture of BCM from BU was necessary to avoid legal conflicts which would ensue from a religiously affiliated BU accepting ongoing State funding. (BU is affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas, whereas BCM has been nonsectarian since its divestiture.)

The University of Miami's Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine is located in Miami, Florida. Starting in 2004, the Miller School began offering instruction on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. MD candidates are admitted to either the Miami or Boca Raton programs and spend all four years studying on the selected campus.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> There is no on-campus housing for students of the Miller School of Medicine in Miami or Boca Raton.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> The Miami and Boca Raton campuses charge identical tuition, with a lower tuition for in-state students.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
