Registration and Credits

Students participating in this program will be registered at their home university in Oregon and will receive home campus credits for courses taken at the ITESM campus in Querétaro. Students’ course work will be reviewed and evaluated by appropriate academic departments at their home institutions. Students must keep detailed records of course outlines, reading lists, exam results, and other work completed to facilitate accurate evaluation by their home university academic departments.
Students are advised to consult with their academic advisor about their plans to study in the Mexico-ITESM program. Students wishing to earn major or minor credits for courses taken at ITESM are strongly advised to be in frequent communication with their advisor to determine what’s possible.
Because of the nature of this program, courses and credits are applied after completion of the program.
