The Ministry of Education (MEC) released late this Tuesday night (3) the list of pre-selected candidates in a single call to the Student Financing Fund (Fies) for the second half of 2021. The result is available at Fies page.
The selection ensures only the expectation of entitlement to a vacancy, while the contracting of financing is subject to the other rules and procedures for formalizing the contract. The deadline for completing the registration information starts today (4) and ends on Friday (6).
Students not pre-selected were automatically included in the waiting list, subject to classification. Considering that there is no new ranking, after the publication of the result of the single call, the waiting list participants must, obligatorily, accompany their eventual pre-selection.
In this case, candidates must complete their registration within three working days, counted from the day following the publication of their pre-selection in the system. The deadline for the waiting list is August 31st.
In 2021, Fies had a total offer of 93 thousand vacancies. In this selection for the second semester, 69 thousand places are available, distributed in 23,320 courses from 1,324 private higher education institutions. If there are remaining vacancies, not occupied in the single call, the MEC may make a new selection.
To access the fund, it is necessary to have per capita gross monthly family income of up to three minimum wages and to have participated in one of the editions of the National Secondary Education Examination (Enem), starting in 2010, obtaining at least 450 points on the average of the five exam tests and not having cleared the writing test.
Fies is the federal government’s program that aims to facilitate access to credit for financing higher education courses offered by private institutions adhering to the program. Created in 1999, it has been offered in two modalities since 2018, through Fies and Student Financing Program (P-Fies).
The first is operated by the federal government, without interest, for students who have a family income of up to three minimum wages per person; the maximum percentage of the value of the financed course is defined according to the family income and educational charges charged by educational institutions. P-Fies, on the other hand, has specific rules, without selection, and works with resources from constitutional funds and participating private banks, which implies charging interest.
