Special Students

Special Students are individuals who enroll in one or more courses for one term, and are not eligible to any master or doctor degree at USP. They are granted academic credit for successfully completed courses, which may be transferred to other institutions.

If you further apply as a degree student, you will be eligible to use the credits granted as a special student in your graduate program at ESALQ. To qualify, the credits earned as a special student must be no longer than 36 months prior to the first enrollment as a degree student, in accordance with the limitations set forth in USP Graduate By-laws and Program Regulations.

There are two categories of Special Students:

  • A graduate student who is currently enrolled in a degree program at another institution: these students may attend more than one course per term.
  • A student who is currently not enrolled at a degree program at any institution: these students may attend only one course per term. They must hold at least a bachelor's degree.
