MEDUCA Convalidation

This process must be completed by all incoming students enrolling in 2nd grade onwards who have obtained credits abroad. 

Parents need to present the required documents to the Ministry of Education within six months of their students' enrollment date at ISP.

It is ideal that you obtain these documents in your country of origin before travelling to Panama as they need to be certified locally. 

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or on the phone to +507 293-3000.
