3 There are a few things that you absolutely need to do in the weeks leading up to your travel to Mexico. 1) Obtain a passport! When you receive your passport make several photocopies of the first page which contains your picture. Leave 1 copy at home with your family and bring the others with you. Also, make photocopies of the front and back of your credit card(s) in case they become lost or stolen and you need to contact your home bank. * You will need a passport to withdraw money from Mexican banks and also to acquire pesos from most "Casas de Cambio" (currency exchange stores). * If you lose your passport while in Mexico, you will have to go to your country's embassy in Mexico City and apply for a temporary one. You will need an ID with picture, such as a driver s license, to be able to obtain it. 2) Obtain a Mexican visa. The Mexican government requires all foreign students studying for a period longer than 2 months or those that will do an internship of any duration in Mexico, to obtain a student visa FM3. This student visa can be issued in your home country through a Mexican consulate or embassy. In case you fail to obtain your FM3 please contact our Office of International Programs. Once you arrive to Cuernavaca you will need to register your FM3 at the National Immigration Institute in Cuernavaca, at an additional cost of approximately $65.00 US. Students studying for a period of 2 months or less do not need a student visa and should apply for a FMT tourist visa. This format will be handed to you during your flight to Mexico. The Office of International Programs at our Campus will provide you with the necessary information and assistance during the Orientation Session. For more information visit the official Immigration website of the Mexican government at (under trámites migratiorios). 3) Pay the $100 US Activities Fee to the Office of International Programs as soon as possible. If you have any problems doing so, please contact the Office of International Programs. The accommodation and activities fees are non-refundable. 4) If you wish to profit from the Airport Pick-up arrangement, send your flight information as soon as possible to our office. If you do not contact us about your arrival time, flight number, etc., by the deadline, we will not be able to pick you up from the airport!!! (See also arrival information) 3 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 3

4 5) Send your insurance information to the Office of International Programs. Either a letter from your insurance agent or a copy of your policy will be accepted. 6) Send your emergency contact information and carry this information on you ALWAYS. *For convenience, please send all the required documents in one envelope. DO NOT PACK your passport, money, and other vital documents in your suitcase! You will regret it when you arrive in Mexico and you have to dig through your suitcase in a crowded airport. Your backpack, travel bag, etc. should serve that purpose. What to bring to Mexico 4 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 4

5 Before we go into this section, let it be known that what most of you will bring in terms of clothes is not necessarily what your Mexican peers at Campus Cuernavaca will be wearing. Even in the middle of summer, most Mexicans will not be wearing shorts, but jeans instead. Also, Mexicans like to dress up for virtually every occasion. Nonetheless, we recommend you to definitely bring some shorts, because most of you are not accustomed to the heat. You have the final option. If you are afraid you will "stand out" with your daily attire of shorts-and-shirts (and you want to fight off the heat), then by all means bring every pair of pants you own. When preparing to leave, remember that Cuernavaca is warm year-round; wearing light colors (white, beige, yellow) is a smart way to combat the heat. However, the climate in Mexico City, and sometimes at night in Cuernavaca, is a bit chilly, even in the summer. You will all make at least one visit to arguably the biggest city in the world, so be prepared! What else we recommend you to bring: A pair of sandals with solid supports, slippers/flip-flops. There are 2 reasons why: #1, it may be a sign of disrespect to walk barefoot around your home, #2, we have scorpions here! Don't worry, the worst they can do is give you a big welt and cause a considerable amount of irritation. Since we are on this subject, always make sure to shake out your shoes before putting them on while you are here. Washcloths - for your face, hands, etc. Mexican Pesos - make sure you exchange some currency at the airport upon arrival. Laptop - If you have a laptop, do not forget to bring it. It is also important that you bring the necessary cables and plugs to connect it to the wireless internet and electric outlets in Mexico. Sun block - at least level 30. Mexico is a lot closer to the equator than most of your homes are! Buy it at home, because it is more expensive here. Compact umbrella - Can be really handy at night when you are waiting to get into a disco or bar. The rain season begins in June and ends in October. Nearly every night at around 10 p.m., rain begins to fall ruthlessly from the sky, usually for about 45 minutes. Light rain/spring jacket - A combination pullover/rain coat (with a hood) can really come in handy during Cuernavaca nights, either for temperature drops or rain showers. 5 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 5

6 A comfortable, durable pair of tennis, hiking, or cross-training shoes - You will be doing all kinds of things on the weekends and you will also need them to play various sports on campus. Make sure you bring something with thick rubber soles. Those who don't tend to regret it. At least 2 sweatshirts or sweaters - Always better to be safe than sick, right? At night, Mexico City can actually drop down as far as 5 Celsius/ 40 Fahrenheit, and it is obviously a place you are going to visit somewhat frequently. A QUICK REMINDER FOR WOMEN: Please leave too revealing clothing at home. The following comment is not intended to be chauvinistic, but the reality is that you will be sending out the wrong messages to Mexican men, some of whom may mistake you for easy-to-get. MEN: as noted elsewhere in the Handbook, you will need pants to get into virtually every discotheque, bar and some restaurants. 2 Rolls of toilet paper - You will see that this is not that crazy when you start traveling around Mexico and you need to use a public bathroom. Toilet paper is unavailable at most of these places, so start collecting. Compact, battery-operated alarm clock - Cuernavaca occasionally has power outages (usually for no more than 5 minutes); buy your batteries at home because they are expensive in Mexico. 2 small bottles of Pepto-Bismal, Immodium AD, or Kaopectate (or similar products) - Hopefully, you'll never have to break the seal on these bottles, but just in case. You can also buy LOMOTIL, an excellent stomach-relief product here in Mexico if you happen to forget to buy anything back home. OFF! Or another mosquito repellent - to protect you from pesky mosquitoes. CALADRYL!! or another good lotion for treating bites after your OFF! has come off. Reading material in your native language - Yes, you are here to learn Spanish, but there will be times when your brain simply hurts too much from thinking all day in this language. Having a few of your favorite magazines by your side is always a good remedy. You can buy books and magazines in English at some stores in Cuernavaca. 6 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 6

7 Travel guide of Mexico - If they are available in your country, look for Lonely Planet guides, as they generally provide clear and elaborate information. Personal hygiene items, vitamins, contact lenses solution etc. All these items are a bit pricey here. In general, imported goods are more expensive here in Mexico than back home, so bring extras of things that you really need! Also, your favorite brand might not be available in Mexico. Electrical devises Most Mexican homes, apartments, and hotels have 2-prong (ungrounded) sockets. These are the same as used in the United States, only generally un-earthed. You may need an adapter for your devises if you have a different type. Voltage 110 v Luggage Please confirm with your airline the maximum weight and bag limit they allow per traveler. Mark your luggage tags with our address here at the Office of International Programs, NOT your home address. It is obviously better to have lost luggage delivered to our office rather than sent back home! Also, do not wait at the airport for any misplaced luggage. Just report your baggage loss and get on the bus to Cuernavaca, and wait for delivery. Additionally, remember to pack efficiently! Keep in mind that you are going to buy many souvenirs, etc. throughout your travels in Mexico. You will need extra space in your luggage for all the stuff that you are bound to accumulate!!! Miscellaneous Set up an ATM or similar bank card account before you leave home. This will allow you to acquire money (you will be receiving pesos from bank machines - your country's currency is automatically converted into pesos) at any hour that you need it. There are plenty of cash machines downtown in El Centro, and many 24 hr shops (Oxxo) are also equipped. Visa & Mastercard are accepted nearly everywhere in Mexico. American Express is not. If you can, obtain an ATM card affiliated with one of these two companies if they are not available in your country, choose the credit card company where you live with the best reputation for international service. The Mexican government requires every foreigner to bring some form of credit card (ATM bank card, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc.) to prove that they have money to stay in the country. 7 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 7

8 Make sure you make photocopies of the front and back of your credit and cash cards in case they get lost or stolen while in Mexico. This way, you know exactly who to contact at your local bank in case of an emergency. Check with your bank how to contact them. Traveler s Cheques - These come in very handy in Mexico. Personal checks will not be accepted anywhere! Ask for small dominations and make sure you continuously update your cheque records. An extra piece of advice: Do not wait till Friday to get your money for the weekend. The banks will be overloaded with people trying to cash their paychecks. Flashlight - Make sure it is small. Convenient if you are studying and a power outage occurs. Extra pair of glasses / contact lenses. At the very least, bring a copy of your prescription. Medical prescriptions - If you take medication on a regular basis, bring a supply large enough to last throughout your stay in Mexico. Try to bring all your prescriptions in their original containers. Have your physician write a note explaining the purpose of your medicine (just in case the customs agents want proof!) The same goes for pre-existing conditions - bring a copy of your medical records or previous treatment, especially any medication you may need. Make sure the medicines' names are clearly written or typed, and correctly spelled. FANNYPACK - The best place to keep your wallet / belongings when you are traveling. Yes, everyone knows they are far from stylish, but who cares! A shirt pocket with buttons is also a good spot, and a last resort is the front pocket of your pants/shorts. And finally, some more advice: Clean out your wallets/purses before leaving for Mexico. All you need is your driver's license, 1 credit card, and the bare necessities. There is no sense in having to open up a big fat purse or wallet (filled with library cards, photos, etc.) every time you need to buy something. You never know who is looking over your shoulder. Women: Only use purses with thick, solid straps and preferably zipper. If all you have are pocketbooks with thin straps, hold them near your chest, particularly in highly-populated areas. One common purse-snatching technique occurs when someone "accidentally" bumps into you in a crowded environment, such as a bus terminal, and disappears with your belongings before you ve even had a chance to recover. NEVER CARRY LARGE AMOUNTS OF CASH!!! 8 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 8

9 Arrival information Here, in order of occurrence, are the steps every foreigner must take in order to make it out of the airport. 1) Go to the Immigration Desk This should not be hard to do, since virtually everyone on your flight will be doing the same thing. If you have already obtained a STUDENT VISA (FM3), you can have it validated here, provided that you have a passport or a certified copy of your birth certificate. In case you don t have a student visa yet, you can request a TOURIST VISA. During your flight, flight attendants will provide you with the necessary information. Keep in mind one important detail: The immigration officer will not ask you which duration of visa you want (30, 90, 180 days). You are responsible for requesting a visa of at least 180 days!! Just in case you are not confident enough in your Spanish, and they do not speak English, write down how many days you want your visa to cover, and then present it to them. Not to worry, the majority of officers will give you 180 days. Keep in mind that asking for an extension of your visa will cost you about $380 Pesos. If you are the owner of a FM3 (green book), your name will have to be written in the national register for foreigners within 30 days after your arrival, which will have an approximate cost of $650 Pesos. Please watch out! If you already own a FM3 be careful NOT to get a tourist visa. If you have two different visas you will be charged twice. 2) Collect your luggage For those of you who travel light, you will be extremely grateful you did so at this point. Mexico City International Airport is gigantic, with tons of people running around in a million directions. The more things you have, the more difficult it is going to be to obtain pesos from the cash exchange, to load/unload your bags in the customs area, to find transportation to Cuernavaca, etc. Also, as would be the case in any major airport, there are a few shady characters who like to hang out in the baggage checking area and take off with items that are not being properly supervised. Porters are available to help you with your luggage once you pass through customs. You should tip them about 10 pesos depending on the amount of baggage you have. 9 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 9

10 3) Go through customs. During the flight to Mexico, you will be given a small white card to fill out; a CUSTOMS DECLARATION FORM. Make sure you declare everything you are carrying that this form requires you to list. After collecting your luggage, you will present this card to a customs officer, and then push a button as you pass through a gate. The button activates a traffic light-type device, which will turn either "green" or "red" when you pass. If you are "green," life is easy. If the light turns red, your bags will be inspected. Your chances of being "red" are totally random. It is very important to be accurate with your C.D.F. If, for example, you have brought more items than the maximum limit, you will have to pay import duties. Again, avoid problems such as these by packing carefully and declaring accordingly. 10 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 10

11 Transportation Cuernavaca/Airport With regard to getting around, there are plenty of different options. You will find different choices based upon reliability and how much you would like to spend on arriving in Cuernavaca. 1. Tecnológico de Monterrey transportation We can arrange for you to be picked up at the Mexico City International Airport and introduced to your host family in Cuernavaca. We will let you know in advance where the meeting point at the airport is located. We will be holding up a sign that will either have your name or the "Tecnológico de Monterrey" emblem on it. Upon arrival in Cuernavaca, students will be taken to the campus or to the homes of their host families. * This pick-up system is only available on the official arrival days before 7 p.m. To check the arrival days please check out the important dates, for example available on the website. If you wish to utilize this service, please indicate so on your application form. 2. Autobus: Pullman de Morelos This is certainly the best way to get to Cuernavaca on your own. Pullman de Morelos is an upscale bus company that can take you directly from the airport to its Casino de la Selva station, located on the outskirts of Cuernavaca, in the north. It's safe, comfortable, reliable, and cheap. To take the bus, you can either ask an M.C. Airport Customer Service Representative where the Pullman de Morelos transport area is, or you can follow these directions: When you arrive at Mexico City airport, as you leave customs turn left and walk to gate E2. Here you will turn left again, go up on the ramps and walk through a hall. Located here is the ticket booth. The name of the bus company is Pullman de Morelos, the cost of a one way ticket is around $ pesos. As soon as you buy the ticket, continue down the corridor and down a ramp until you reach the street level. This is the area from where the buses depart. The trip takes about two hours, depending on Mexico City traffic. The last bus to Cuernavaca leaves at 11:00 pm. You will arrive at the Casino de la Selva bus station in Cuernavaca. There is a pre-paid taxi service available inside the bus station and you can take a taxi to our campus or to your family s house. PULLMAN BUS SCHEDULE (based on information 2008) - Airport to Casino de la Selva station in CV / Casino to Airport From the Airport to Cuernavaca (Mon-Sun) 6:40, 7:15, 8, 8:30, 9, 9:30, 10, 10:40, 11:20 a.m., 12:00, 12:40, 1:20, 2, 2:30, 3, 3:30, 4, 4:40, 5:20, 6, 6:40, 7:20, 8, 8:40, 9:20, 10:10, 10:50 & 11:30p.m 11 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 11

12 From Cuernavaca to Airport (Mon-Sun) 3:40, 4:01, 4:25, 5:01, 5:31, 6:05, 6:35, 7:05, 7:35, 8:20, 9:05, 9:45, 10:31, 11:21am, 12:01, 12:31, 1:01, 1:31, 2:01, 2:41,3:21, 4:01, 4:41, 5:21, 6:01, 7:01, 8:01p.m. You can expect to pay around pesos for a daytime taxi ride from the Casino de la Selva bus stop to your Mexican home (because this station is on the far end of Cuernavaca). At night, it will probably be 15 pesos more. 3. Taxi to Tasqueña (Southern Bus Station) in Mexico City. This option is recommended only as a backup plan. Take a taxi from the airport to Tasqueña, from Tasqueña bus station, you take a bus to different destinations in Cuernavaca, but that is the only advantage. The bus fare is 65 pesos, in addition to the 65 pesos more (approximately) you are going to have to pay in taxi rides in Mexico City and later in Cuernavaca. You can purchase a taxi ticket for the Tasqueña bus station at the Domestic Arrivals area of the airport, or buy it in the Tasqueña bus station. The ticket box for Pullman de Morelos is located on the far end of the terminal. Only go this route if it is too late to get a Pullman bus from the airport to the Casino de la Selva station in Cuernavaca. Although we do not have the schedule for Pullmans' going from Tasqueña to Cuernavaca, we can tell you that they have buses running to Casino de la Selva every day until midnight (12 a.m.) almost every 15 minutes. Below you will find the schedule for Cuernavaca to Tasqueña: PULLMAN BUS SCHEDULE El Centro in 'Cuernavaca to Tasqueña Station in Mexico City PHONE # , or (DAILY) 5:15 a.m 5:45 a.m 6 a.m. *After 6 a.m., there's a Pullman bus going to Tasqueña every 15 minutes until 8 p.m. *After 8 p.m., every 30 minutes until 10 p.m. Casino de la Selva in Cuernavaca to Tasqueña Station in Mexico City. PHONE # , or # (DAILY) Buses run every 10 minutes from 4:45 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. 4. Taxi to Cuernavaca This is certainly not the best way to get to Cuernavaca on your own, for a variety of reasons. First of all, it will be ridiculously expensive. Second, although highly unlikely, it could be dangerous, particularly if it is night, you are alone, and you are a woman. Finally, unless you have it understood that the cost to go through the toll is included in the overall transportation price, you may get stuck paying even more. So, unless you absolutely have no other alternative (but you probably will), forget you ever read this paragraph. 12 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 12

13 Accommodation in Cuernavaca If you would like the International Office to find suitable accommodation for you, which is highly recommended if it is your first time in Cuernavaca, then you need to mail us your $250 US accommodation fee as soon as possible. This fee is non-refundable. You have a few options, which are also explained on the main website of the Office of International Programs. Here a brief overview: 1. Family Program Live with a Mexican Family to get the full Mexican experience! This family-away-from-home will provide you with meals, clean rooms, guidance and advice and whatever else you might need. Most host families show great interest in the lives, cultures and backgrounds of their foreign students. They want to help you learn and feel part of the family. Additionally, most houses have a communal swimming pool. 2. Student Inn This Program offers independent housing within a family s property. The family lives on the same terrain but acts solely as administrator, thus providing a higher level of independence than the Family Program. Naturally, you can still choose to search accommodation on your own. We do not recommend this unless you have been to Cuernavaca before or you already have contacts here. While there are several places relatively close to the campus that rent to students, they tend to become occupied rather quickly. Rooms or unfurnished bungalows usually cost between pesos/month. Apartments or houses can vary anywhere from pesos a month. Other recommendations Here are the approximate hours at which you can expect to eat your meals: Breakfast: (7:00-7:45 a.m.) Dinner: (2:30-3:30 p.m.) Supper/light meal: (7:00-9:00 p.m.) If you cannot make it home for a meal, or you would just rather eat somewhere else on a given day, let your family know. It is common courtesy. You would probably do the same in your own house. Also, do not help yourself to food in the refrigerator unless your host family says it is OK, okay? 13 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 13

14 House keys Each student will receive 1 set of keys to get in and out of their house or apartment. Please double-check that all the necessary doors are locked whenever you exit, especially late at night. Take care of things as if it is your own home. Of course, you will need to return the keys whenever your time in Cuernavaca is up, and if you lose the original set, you will have to pay for new ones. Changing your host family In the unlikely event that you are unhappy with your host family or their accommodations, the Office of International Programs can find other housing for you during the first 2 weeks of your stay ONLY. Nonetheless, remember that your biggest responsibility in Mexico is to remember what country you are in. In other words, in order to make a smooth transition into the Mexican culture, you are the one who needs to adjust to your host family s customs and way of life; not vice-versa. Any questions or concerns you have should be directed to: Orquidea Alvarez Accommodation Coordinator Phone: (01-777) Fax: (01-777) Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 14

15 Academic System The grading system used at the Tecnológico de Monterrey is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Furthermore, the university is recognized throughout Mexico as one of the finest university systems. Its outstanding reputation alone is normally enough to ensure that student s credits transfer to their universities. Furthermore, if your university has an agreement with the Tecnológico and you enroll as exchange student, you will receive full-credit and an equivalent grade for the courses you take at Campus Cuernavaca. Students coming from schools who do not have an exchange agreement with us will be charged a nonrefundable registration fee of $100 U.S. Adding/dropping classes In case you decide to make changes in your course program, please visit the Office of International Programs or contact Susana Rojas, the coordinator of Academic Programs. Please keep in mind that you can never receive a full refund for a course that you choose to withdraw from. Grading system in USA The grades of campus Cuernavaca transfer to US grades in the following manner: Grade in Tecnológico de Monterrey A A B B B C C C D D D F Equivalent in the USA At Tecnológico de Monterrey students need to score a minimum of 70 to pass a class. 15 Last updated: April 2008 by Carin Verbree 15

16 Campus facilities and schedules Sports The campus offers a wide variety of different sports and classes. You can choose to either join a class or team or play individually.

20 Textbooks This is the cost of the books you'll have to buy for use in your classes. Insurance If you don't have a copy of your insurance policy you'll need to buy the insurance program that the Tecnológico offers for the semester. As was previously mentioned, we need your proof of insurance for our files. You should also check with your agent to see if you have coverage outside your native country. Unfortunately, chances are that your policy will not cover you in Mexico. If this is the case, you should definitely look into an international policy for your stay in Cuernavaca. Consult your insurance agent. Tecnológico de Monterrey also offers a plan with Seguros-Monterrey-Aetna, but it only covers major medical expenses. If you are interested, you must send us your policy number and the name of the carrier. This insurance plan has a direct payment agreement with the following Cuernavaca hospitals: 1. Hospital Morelos - Privada Jazmín #2, Colonia Chapultepec. Phone: , , or Hospital Henry Dunant- Rio Panuco #100, Colonia Los Volcanes. Phone: , or Hospital Bellavista Avenida Palmas #100, Colonia Bellavista. Phone: , or Of course, you can go to any other hospital in Mexico, but you will have to pay your fee at that exact moment, and later, you will be compensated by Seguros-Monterrey-Aetna. Please contact the Office of International Programs for more information.
