Regular Students

Mid-term Enrollment:

The regular student must enroll twice a year on the Janus System, until the dissertation or thesis delivery.

There are two types of enrollment: enrollment in disciplines or follow-up enrollment (if you are not going to take the disciplines).

The mid-term enrollment must be made in January and July, according to the schedule informed by the Dean of Graduate Studies through USP e-mail.

Failure to enroll implies termination of the Graduate Program.

Consult periodically the “Student’s Record” on Janus System to check the disciplines taken, the number of credits required, deadline for registration and completion of the Qualification Exam, deadline for delivering the work (dissertation/thesis), and the deadline for defense.

Failure to meet the aforementioned deadlines results in academic dismissal.

In the case of missing the deadline for enrollment in discipline or follow-up enrollment, the student must fill out the form below and deliver it to their Graduate Program Office:

• Use of credits in a course taken outside USP;
• Use of credits in a course taken at USP;
• Allocation of special credits;
• Put Enrollment on Hold;
