Course Equivalency and Credit

It is the administrative act focused on validating your studies abroad, that is, outside the national education system. It can be granted in three ways:

1) Partial Revalidation
Se otorga a quienes hayan realizado estudios en el extranjero y pretendan revalidar sus estudios parciales, correspondientes a algún nivel del tipo superior, para continuarlos en instituciones del Sistema Educativo Nacional.

2) Total Revalidation
It is granted to those who have accredited and completed studies abroad of the superior type and who seek the recognition of these in the National Education System.

3) Expert opinion
Administrative act through which the educational authority recognizes for exclusively academic purposes, studies completed abroad, except for those referred to normal education.
With the objective that the interested person study postgraduate studies in the National Educational System, when this one does not have the purpose of practicing professionally in Mexico.

This process you must do personally before the Secretary of Public Education. Learn more HERE
