Regular Student - Undergraduate

There are three ways of being admitted as a regular student on an undergraduate course at USP:


Entrance Exam


The main way to enter as a regular student in an undergraduate course at USP is by taking an exam organized by FUVEST (Foundation for University Entrance Exams).


For freshman are offered annually:
     Astronomy | 15 students/year | disciplines
     Geophysics | 30 students/year | disciplines
     Meteorology | 30 students/year | disciplines
The Calendar and further information about the selection process can be found at the FUVEST website (only available in Portuguese).
Program for Partner Undergraduate Students (PEC-G)
The Program for Partner Undergraduate Students (PEC-G, the portuguese acronym) is a cooperation program between Brazil and countries in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. The goal is to offer young students from these countries the opportunity to undertake their full undergraduate studies at Brazilian universities.
More information can be found at USP's International Office and Ministry of Foreign Affirs of Brazil websites.

Transfer from other higher education institutions (either Brazilian or foreign) is only possible when vacancies are available.

The process is divided in two steps:

  1. The first is under responsibility of FUVEST. It is an exam similar to the entrance exam.

  2. The second is restricted to the applicants approved on the first exam, and consists of a more specific exam at IAG.


Calls are opened annually around March, and they can be found here and at the FUVEST website.
