The end of registration for the Student Financing Fund (Fies) for the first half of 2022 was reopened this Tuesday (15).
Until then, registration should have been closed last Friday (11). But, after “identifying slowness and occasional interruptions, for a few minutes, in the Fies electronic system”, the Ministry of Education decided to reopen registration for 24 hours this Tuesday.
Therefore, until 11:59 pm on Tuesday, Fies will accept new registrations, and those already made can be edited.

O Fies grants funding to students in non-free higher education courses at private higher education institutions.
The fund is a student financing model divided into different modalities, and can grant zero interest to those who need it most. The scale varies according to the candidate’s family income. The program offers a credit from 50% to 100% of the course fee.
The person concerned cannot have a monthly family income per capita of more than 3 minimum wages (R$ 3,636).
To register, you must have participated in some edition of the Enem (National High School Exam) since 2010, with an arithmetic average grade of the tests equal to or greater than 450 points and a grade greater than zero in the essay.
