Enter with your student ID number and email password to our admission process page and update your information in the “Admission application” section.

Remember, as a PrepaTec student, if at the time of your graduation you have an average of 80 or higher, your pass to Professional is direct* and you will only have to complete the steps mentioned next.

If you do not have this average, we ask that you contact your admissions advisor to learn about the additional steps to follow.

Confirm your enrollment to Tec

Pay the tuition advance payment of $7,000 pesos here to confirm your entry to the undergraduate level. Consult the payment methods in the admissions department at your campus of interest. In addition, check out the undergraduate entry events, create your class schedule, select your payment and insurance plans, and pay your tuition.

As a PrepaTec student, your tuition payment insurance for entry to the Undergraduate level is already covered. However, if you decide to enter the Undergraduate level in a semester other than the one immediately after your graduation from PrepaTec you will have to pay this insurance.

After July 29, 2022, in order to complete your enrollment, you must pay the equivalent of the first tuition payment plus the cost of the tuition payment insurance current at that time. Ask you admissions advisor about the amounts.

Deadline for requesting a tuition advance payment refund: August 5, 2022.
