EducationUSA advising center at Secretaría de Educación y Cultura del Estado de Sonora

The EducationUSA advising center at Secretaría de Eduación y Cultura del Estado de Sonora in Hermosillo, Sonora, México offers professional educational advising services to approximately 500 students, each year. 

Operating at the standard level, our advising center services students who are interested in engaging in academic exchange between Mexico and the U.S. From studying English as a foreign language, participating in short term exchanges, enrolling into full academic degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels at accredited U.S. higher education institutions, our EducationUSA advising center promotes a wide variety of academic opportunities and supports students, parents, teachers, local governments and higher education institutions in their efforts to achieve their academic mobility goals.

The center provides a variety of educational services, including free introductory public information sessions on various topics of U.S. education, webinars, individual consultations on U.S. study, and application support services. It also provides logistical support to accredited U.S. higher education institutions on recruitment in Mexico as well as supports open public events such as presentations and fairs to promote exchange opportunities, working closely with the local educational community. Our host, Secretaría de Educación y Cultura del Estado de Sonora is the State’s Education Ministry and oversees all public education programs in the state. Our center office is within the Ministry for Higher Education (Subsecretaría de Educación Media Superior y Superior) which is located in a historic building that was once a military precinct built in 1909.

The good results we have had during the three years the center has been operating have been due to the good relation between our host institution and Education USA.
