Documentation proving completion of studies equivalent to High School, accompanied by an equivalence opinion issued by the State Department of Education (when it is not possible to present documents proving schooling, the refugee will be allowed to prove it by other means of proof in law - provisory instruction approved by the WG-Cátedra Sergio Vieira de Mello in a meeting chaired by the Dean on 04/24/2018 to be regulated by resolution)

Documents can be delivered in person at the DAC Service or send a message through Talk to DAC.

Attention: It will not be allowed to request a vacancy only with the refugee visa application protocol, and the applicant must wait until the conclusion of his application by Conare.


As decided at a meeting of the GT-Cátedra chaired by Profa. Dr. Rosana Baeninger and with the presence of the Magnificent Rector, Prof. Dr. Marcelo Knobel, on April 24, 2018, a vacancy request submitted by a refugee who has completed some level of education in Brazil will not be accepted. Therefore, requests from candidates who have attended High School, Undergraduate or Master's in Brazil will not be accepted.

After the request is accepted by the DAC, the documentation delivered will be analyzed by an Evaluation Committee established by the Dean’s Office and published in the Official Gazette of the State of São Paulo (DOESP). In case of approval (acceptance) of the application, DAC will contact the applicant to inform about the registration procedures.

We emphasize that there are no guaranteed vacancies for people with Refugee status. The granting of the place will depend on the analysis of the documentation delivered by the instituted Commission and the maximum number of students that each course allows.
