The program is based on trust and good faith and has an extraordinary and temporary character. It aims to facilitate the entry of young Mexican students living and studying in the United States of America that wish to conclude their studies in a Mexican Higher Education Institution. The program will be a mechanism which complements the actions carried out by the Federal Executive, the Ministry of Public Education and the commitment of the Congress of the Union, to reform and add various provisions of the General Education Law and the Agreement 286, respectively.

Agreement 286 establishes the guidelines that determine the general rules and criteria to be followed by the revalidation of studies abroad and the equivalence of studies.
