Welcome to our Admissions page!

At Tec de Monterrey, we are looking for candidates who have a broad range of experiences. Therefore, our admissions process focuses on the selection of young people who have the potential to become leaders with a spirit of entrepreneurship and a sense of humanity, and who are internationally competitive. Attracting candidates who have the proven capacity and the enthusiasm to enrich their academic and student life at Tecnológico de Monterrey is very important to us. This selection process aims to integrate into our institution only the students with the best profiles.

In order to be admitted to Tecnológico de Monterrey, you must first complete an application process consisting of several steps and meet all the requirements described in each one.

With the objective of attaining a consistent assessment of your profile and academic background, the Admissions Committee reviews your characteristics as an applicant and reaches a decision on your admission by means of a comprehensive process.

The selection criteria taken into consideration by the committee for your admission include aspects such as your past academic performance and other matters that will influence your future success, such as:

  • Score on the Academic Aptitude Test (PAA).
  • Academic record.
  • Résumé.
  • Essay.
  • Letters of recommendation (at the committee’s request).
  • Interview (at the committee’s request).
  • TOEFL, or equivalent test, score (optional).


Admission to the Health Science programs (Biomedical Engineering, Nutrition and Wellness, Clinical Psychology and Health, Physician and Surgeon, and Dentist and Dental Surgeon), as well as Innovation and Development Engineering, international majors and international honors majors, is more rigorous and require an interview and/or proficiency in the English language. For further details on the requirements for these majors, please contact the campus of your choice.

Although your academic record and score on the Academic Aptitude Test are very important, the other criteria complement the details of your profile and give us a better idea about who you are.

Once you have completed the application process, the committee reviews your profile and makes its decision. A letter will also be sent to your home.

Please note that the decision of the Admissions Committee is final and the selection process is private and confidential. Therefore, Tecnológico de Monterrey does not disclose the reasons for accepting or rejecting a candidate.

After being admitted, you can choose to study at any of our campuses, as long as there are places available when you confirm your intention to attend. Please check the early admission deadlines so you will have more chance of being accepted in your chosen campus and major. If you are a financial-aid student and decide to study at a different campus, you will also have to check the availability of financial aid at the campus you selected.


Please note that some of the programs have reached the maximum number of students that can be ADMITTED in the August-December 2015 semester, such as:
