This is normally equivalent to at least level completion of Spanish 201 (or the equivalent) at a minimum. There will be English-speaking college students, faculty and staff who may act as language facilitators.

Accommodation and Meals: 
The accommodation will be in campus dormitories and participants will share a room with other participant of the same sex. Meals will be provided in the University’s cafeteria.
Finances & Scholarships:

The program is funded with contributions from the Mexican private sectors. Thanks to this support, scholarships will be awarded to participants to cover the cost of the academic program, accommodation, meals, and international and local transportation. Aside from the full scholarship support for selected participants, students can also apply for other scholarships to further support their study abroad plans.

An SDSU partner university campus, La Universidad de las Americas Puebla, will run this program, so students interested in study in Mexico can also apply for the regular  Fall, Spring, Academic Year exchange programs at UDLAP to either stay longer and continue in Mexico, or to return to study there at a future date. There are also opportunities for internships for students who study at this campus for at least one semester.
