Tecnológico de Monterrey (Tec de Monterrey) is one of the top universities in Mexico. The university - which is a leader in the fields of technology and business - has more than 30 satellite campuses throughout Mexico, making Tec de Monterrey one of the largest multi-campus universities in all of Latin America. The most popular campuses for University of Mississippi students are the campuses of Puebla, Querétaro, or Mexico City. Students may explore other campus options, but students are not allowed to travel to states where there is a travel warning.
COURSES AND CREDITS
Courses are offered in Spanish and in English. The specific courses available depend on which Tec de Monterrey campus a student is studying at. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 15 hours for undergraduate Mississippi residents receiving financial aid, 12 hours for undergraduate non-residents, and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12-15 hours of credit (depending on residency) on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Students have the option of living in a campus residence facility, living with a local host family or making their own living arrangements.
For the Tec de Monterrey exchange, students are responsible for paying:
- Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
- UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
- Housing costs (details and payments are usually handled between the student and the host university)
- Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Qualified students must first complete the online UM Study Abroad Application. Please note that upon submitting your application, a $100 application fee will be assessed to your UM Bursar Account. After acceptance by the UM Study Abroad Office, students will then be directed to complete the necessary application for the host university and to submit any additional required documents for the host university.
Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. For more details, please refer to the Study Abroad Policies & Procedures page.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
