The research question was inquiring the undergraduates' perception of their professors' practice regarding whether they make use of the creative problem solving (CPS) as a competence for teaching. The study was performed in a public university located in the urban area of Merida City, Yucatan, Mexico, where a total of 247 undergraduates from the Education, Economy and Psychology schools participated. A Teacher Practice Perception Scale (TPPS) was used to know how undergraduates perceive the professor's practice under the creative problem solving, the facilitating and hindering factors for developing creative solutions, the importance of CPS for the curriculum and proposals to develop CPS in the university instructional practice. The results show that (a) all undergraduates perceive CPS at a high level of importance, (b) Psychology undergraduates perceive a medium-high use of CPS by their professors, and (c) Psychology undergraduates perceive at a higher level the facilitating factors of this process.
