If you completed your studies in other institutions, both national and foreign, and wish to continue your studies at CETYS University, you can do it through the procedures of equivalence and / or revalidation.

Admission Process/ Credit and Course Equivalence / Graduate Programs


Credit Transfer

For students of programs within the National Education System. Up to 50% of the credits of the curriculum can be transferred to CETYS

Requirements (original and two copies):

  • Mexican birth certificate.
  • CURP
  • Undergraduate Degree or Professional License.
  • Full or Partial certificate of the graduate program.
  • Description of the courses submitted for transfer.
  • Interview with the Academic Coordinator of the program you would like to enroll in. The purpose of this interview is to sign a Preliminary Credit Transfer Evaluation.
  • Make the corresponding payment at the Department of Student Services. Cost of this process is $5,265.00 pesos* (five thousand, two hundred and sixty-five pesos 00/100).
*Valid amount for 2019

Foreign Credit Transfer

This process focuses on transferring your credits from foreign institutions, meaning outside of the National Educational System. This can be done in three ways:

1) Partial Transfer
It is granted to students who wish to transfer credits from graduate or undergraduate programs, in order to continue studying within the National Educational System.

2) Full Transfer
It is granted to students who finished and accredited a full higher education program abroad and wish to validate it in the National Educational System.

3) Technical Decision
It is an administrative process through which the academic institution recognizes credits obtained abroad with academic purposes only. Through this process, the student will be able to study a graduate program within the National Educational System without being able to practice the profession in Mexico.
