As indicated in the CAD guidelines, the Use of Studies consists of the possibility of taking advantage of activities in previous Postgraduate courses, in which the student has already been approved in the current Postgraduate course.

The use of Studies can be granted by the Graduate Commission (CPG) of the course, upon request of the student, with the approval of the supervisor. 

As determined in Unicamp General Graduate Regulations, the use of studies must be requested until the end of the second academic period of admission.

The IC Graduate Office will determine a period in the semester (see the specific IC graduate calendar on the page of information for professors and graduate students) to receive those requests.

Procedures to request recovery:

  1. Subjects taken at the Institute of Computing (MO—):
    • Fill the DAC form
    • Print, sign, collect the supervisor's signature and leave it at the IC Postgraduate Secretariat together with a copy of the school transcript that contains the subjects for use.
    • As provided for in the IC Graduate Regulations, requests for use of subjects with A or B approval, taken at the IC's PPG, are automatically approved in the five years prior to the date of the request made by the student. Disciplines that do not meet these requirements will only be used with a favorable opinion from CPG
    • For the doctorate it is possible to take up to 12 credits in subjects taken as a regular student of the master's.
  2. Subjects taken outside the Computer Institute (other than MO–)
