Procedures

The candidate for Special Student at Unicamp must:

Consult the Schedule to find out which subjects are offered and choose the ones you want to take.
Check register deadlines on the Academic Calendar.
In case of doubt, contact the Faculty or Institute Secretary for more information about the subject.

It is recommended that all candidates for Special Students, both in Undergraduate and Graduate disciplines, access the websites of the Faculty or Institute to verify the need for additional procedures, such as enrollment in their own systems adopted by the Coordinations and compliance with pre-requirements.

In the case of Postgraduate courses, the interested student must observe the deadlines established in the Academic Calendar to pre-enroll directly in the Faculty or Institute.

Each Faculty or Institute has autonomy to define the Special Student selection criteria, and it is up to each of them to pre-enroll or not.

Even if the Special Student candidate has made some type of pre-enrollment in the Unit of interest, including access to the systems of each Faculty or Institute, it is mandatory to enroll in the Special Student Enrollment System.
