Important changes in SiSU 2024

The Unified Selection System (SiSU), an essential part of the selection process for admission to Brazilian public universities, will adopt the rules of the new revised and recently approved Quota Law.

SiSU schedule in 2024

In principle, registrations for SiSU 2024 begin this Monday, the 22nd, and close on Thursday, the 25th. Around 264 thousand places are available for students who took the Enem in the last three years. An incredible opportunity, isn’t it?

Furthermore, there is a specific schedule and important changes to the rules that candidates need to be aware of. For the first time, SiSU will have only one edition this year, for both the first and second academic semesters.

The results of the first call will be released on January 30th. Registration for those selected will take place from February 1st to 7th. Furthermore, candidates will be able to express interest in the waiting list between January 30th and February 7th.

What’s new in quota expansion

The new law brings significant changes, extending the reservation of places to quilombola students, as well as black, indigenous people, people with disabilities and low-income public school students.

Furthermore, quota holders in vulnerable situations will have priority to receive student aid. This is social inclusion in action!

Criteria reset

Another important change is in the maximum income for public school students who wish to be included in the quota policy.

Now, half of the reserved places will be allocated to students with a family income of up to one minimum wage per person.

What’s more, all candidates, whether quota holders or not, will compete first for highly competitive vacancies. If the grade is not sufficient, quota holders will compete for the reserved places.

Alternatives for those who will not take the SiSU

In addition to SiSU, which guarantees places at public universities, students have other alternatives to enter higher education: Prouni and Fies.

How does Prouni work?

The University for All Program (Prouni) offers partial and full scholarships at private higher education institutions.

To participate, candidates must have taken the most recent Enem and achieved a minimum score, in addition to meeting per capita family income criteria and having studied at a public school or as a full scholarship holder at a private school.

Understand Fies

On the other hand, the Student Financing Fund (Fies) is an option for those seeking financing for courses at private institutions.

Fies requires a minimum Enem score and considers the candidate’s family income to determine financing conditions.

Unlike Prouni, Fies is a loan that must be repaid after completing the course.

It doesn’t matter which program you choose

Both programs are valuable opportunities for students who wish to enter higher education, but who were unable to obtain a place at SiSU or who choose private institutions.

Paying attention to registration deadlines and the specific requirements of each program is essential to take advantage of these alternatives.
