Abstract

This paper objectives to conduct an analysis of the academic evasion phenomenon among undergraduate students of FACE-UFG, an Academic Unit of the Universidade Federal de Goiás. Different from other analysis on the phenomenon, this article, attempting an academic dropout before it occurs, identifying the profile of students most likely to abandon the course. For this, questionnaires were applied to students enrolled in the courses of Administration, Accounting and Economics. The estimation of a probability model shows that, in addition to being very different from each other, the students of the three courses are affected in different ways by these profiles when it comes to solving. The models most related to the form of choice, with the pressure or influence of parents, academic performance, as well as insecurity with the future labor market, are more relevant to explain the student's desire to leave the course then social and demographic characteristics. Based on these results, a series of broad lines of action are proposed to try to reduce the problems of academic avoidance and mitigate its impacts on students
