In 1946, the college became a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree-awarding institution, changing its name to University of the Americas in 1963. In 1968, the college became Universidad de las Americas, as it began the transition into a Spanish-speaking institution, culminating in its move to Cholula, Puebla, in 1971.
Because of internecine problems the campus then split into two separate institutions:
- UDLA – Universidad de las Americas, in Mexico City, Mexico.
- UDLAP – Universidad de las Américas Puebla, in Cholula, Puebla, Mexico.
Unfortunately the UDLAP websites about MCC exalumnos are usually offline; UDLA does not have an alumni website, but a Yahoo! group has a handful of former MCCers who frequently chat about MCC and are managing to keep its history alive.
