The regimes for institution/program transfers and readmission are intended for students who have been enrolled in a national or foreign higher education institution and would like to be admitted to IPVC licentiate degree programs.
Readmission is when a student enrolls in the same institution and in the same program or in a successive program after an interruption in their studies within a particular program and Higher Education Institution.
Institution/Program Transfer in Higher Education
A program transfer is when a student enrolls in a different program from the one in which they were previously enrolled, in the same program, or in another higher education institution, whether or not enrollment in a higher education program has been interrupted.
An institution transfer is when a student registers and enrolls in the same program at a different higher education institution from the one in which they are currently enrolled or had been previously enrolled, whether or not enrollment in a higher education program has been interrupted.
“Same program” refers to programs with the same name that confer the same degree or to programs with different names but situated in the same scientific area. They have similar objectives, provide similar scientific training, and confer:
- The same degree
- A different degree, which results from a modification or adaptation process between a cycle of studies conferring a bachelor’s degree and a cycle of studies conferring a licentiate degree or between a cycle of studies conferring a licentiate degree and an integrated cycle of studies conferring a Master’s degree.
It applies to:
- Public higher education institutions, with the exception of military and police higher education institutions, and private higher education institutions
- The cycles of studies conferring the professional and technical diploma, the licentiate degree, and the master’s degree through an integrated cycle of studies, hereinafter referred to generically as “programs”
Institution/program transfers are not permitted in the academic year in which the student has been placed and and has registered and enrolled in a higher education institution/program pair under any access and admission regime.
