It belongs to the National Scholars System of the National Council for Science and Technology (Conacyt).

The PhD received Conacyt accreditation in 2020, which is why it is incorporated into the National Postgraduate Quality Registry (PNPC), which allows students to receive a maintenance grant for their studies.

The Ph.D. in Agricultural Sciences has various cooperation agreements with foreign institutions, as well as at the national and state levels, which have allowed some students to undertake mobility. For example, some have recently gone on to do residency research at Ohio University, with which there is an agreement that allows for this kind of academic contact. In addition, there is cooperation with the Graduate School, Ipicyt, among other entities.
