The General Index of Courses (known by the Portuguese acronym IGC) is a quality indicator that assesses Higher Education Institutions. Calculated annually, the Index takes the following aspects into consideration:
1 - average Preliminary Course Concept Score (CPC) over the last three years, relative to the courses evaluated by the institution, weighted by the number of enrollments in each of the courses computed;
2 - average of the evaluation concepts of the stricto sensu postgraduate programs awarded by CAPES (Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel) in the last available triennial evaluation, converted to a compatible scale and weighted by the number of enrollments in each of the corresponding postgraduate programs;
3 - distribution of students between different levels of education, undergraduate or stricto sensu post-graduate programs, excluding the item 2 information for institutions that do not offer stricto sensu post-graduate programs.
As the IGC considers the Preliminary Course Concept Score (CPC) of the courses evaluated in the year of calculation and in the two previous years, its disclosure always refers to a triennium, comprising all the areas evaluated in the National Examination of Students' Performance assessment (ENADE).

In 1976, CAPES launched the Graduate Education Evaluation System, which has played a crucial role in the development of graduate education and scientific and technological research in Brazil. It carries out annual monitoring and triennial evaluations of the performance of all programs and courses in the National Graduate Education System (SNPG). The results of this process, expressed in a score on a scale of 1 to 7, are used by the Education Ministry’s National Education Council to decide which courses will remain classified as “recognized” for the subsequent three-year period.
