Some locations in central and southern Mexico may be available on a case-by-case basis with approval from the International Oversight Committee (IOC). Please speak to Study Abroad staff before beginning an application. Please review the current Travel Warning for Mexico as issued by the US Department of State.
**Effective for Summer 2016, UTA has pre-cleared the ITESM Ciudad de Mexico (Mexico City) and ITESM Queretaro campuses.
