I. does not benefit from refugee status for complying with art. 3 of Law No. 9,474/1997; 

II. completed high school in Brazil; 

The decision on the acceptance of admission as a refugee is the responsibility of the Câmara de Ensino de Graduação – CEG, based on a detailed opinion of the Collegium of the corresponding Undergraduate Program
