Every year, the PPGC/UFRPE carries out a selection process through a notice published by PRPPG between September and October for admission in the first semester of the following year.

As of this year's edition, the PPGC/UFRPE selection process will have two stages, which are:

  I. ANPAD Test, Academic Orientation, eliminatory (Weight 7);

 II. Proven curriculum vitae, with a classificatory character (Weight 3).

For each step of the PPGC's selection process, grades assigned may vary from 0-10 (Zero to Ten). Candidates who do not present valid grades in the ANPAD Test will receive a Zero grade in the first stage of the selection process.

The ANPAD Test is carried out by the National Association of Graduate Studies and Research in Administration (ANPAD). Currently, the ANPAD Test takes place four times a year, in March, July, September and November, and is valid for a maximum of two years. Those interested in participating in the selection process must take the test as early as possible.

All information about the tests that make up the ANPAD Test, about how to register and the registration periods to take the test, as well as about the places and dates of the tests, can be obtained through the following link:


After the publication of the final selection result, approved and classified candidates will be called for enrollment, observing the number of vacancies established in the Selection Notice. At the discretion of the Program, approved unclassified students may be invited, in the case of withdrawals by approved and classified candidates.

The selection of students for admission to the PPGC/UFRPE is carried out annually through a Notice published by the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies (PRPPG). Holders of a diploma or certificate from full graduation courses, recognized by the Ministry of Education, can apply.

Admission to the PPGC/UFRPE will not imply, under any circumstances, the obligatory granting of scholarships to selected candidates.

The admission of students holding diplomas issued by foreign institutions must comply with the relevant legislation.

The selection of foreign students is governed by current legislation.
