Admissions Testing

Selecting top candidates for your graduate program can be challenging. Prior academic success doesn’t ensure that a candidate possesses the necessary skills and background to succeed at the graduate level.

What is the PAEP?

The PAEP is a standardized, Spanish-language exam that is designed for the assessment of graduate program candidates. The PAEP was developed in 1991 by the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico in collaboration with the College Board of Puerto Rico and is currently used at leading universities in Latin America to evaluate approximately 5,000 candidates per year.​
