LOL, I checked the Anabin web site for german recognition of foreign degrees, it looks like all the private Universities in CR are H +/- Universidad Empresarial de Costa Rica San Jose Private Hochschule H +/- Costa Rica https://www.kmk.org/zab/zentralstelle-fuer-auslaendisches-bildungswesen/gleichwertigkeitsbescheide-fuer-nicht-reglementierte-landesrechtlich-geregelte-berufe.html H +/- Costa Rica:In Costa Rica, private universities distinguish between institutional accreditation and degree-related accreditation. It is therefore not only the status of the institution that is decisive for the recognition of a Costa Rican private university degree in Germany. Proof of accreditation of the respective course is also a prerequisite. Some of the recognized courses are assigned to the institutions as "degrees". Degree programs that are completed as part of international agreements or distance learning are generally not recognized. The lack of recognition has nothing to do with the cited article. It is extended to all the private schools in CR, all the degrees completed at distance are not recognized.
