Conditional admission of an application

Situations in which conditional applications are admitted:

  1. Applicants that do not have the supporting documents of the required qualifications or other mandatory documents until the end of the application deadline.
  2. Applicants that are in a position to complete the course before the date expected to publish the final seriation list.

The submission of the conditional application is carried out by indication of the applicant and is done according to the following rules:

  • If the application is conditioned due to the absence of a document that is not needed to apply the seriation criteria, the applicant must indicate which document is not submitted. Therefore, the application will be validated and appraised;
  • If the application is conditioned due to the absence of a document indispensable to the appraisal and seriation of the application, the applicant must indicate which document is absent and submit a sworn statement mentioning the absent information;
  • The non-submission of the sworn statement implies the non-validation of the application;
  • If students do not collect the required documents or do not ascertain the completion of the course until the date indicated at InforEstudante, they may carry over their application into the subsequent phase if there is one.

Only the applicants who submit the missing documents within the deadline mentioned at InforEstudante can be included on the final seriation list.
