The survey was conducted under the optics of evasion by course, which considers evaded the student who abandons/desists from the course which they are enrolled before completing it. Among the factors contributing to a student to give up the course, which they are enrolled, are Academic-institutional factors; Socio-political-economic factors and Personal factors. In this context, the main objective of this study was to measure and understand the reality of evasion in the undergraduate courses at the Federal University of Goiás (UFG). For a greater range of the study, the evasion calculations were carried out in the period from 2014 to 2016, using mostly three formulas: the first formula was stipulated by the Special Committee on Evasion Studies, the second one was the formula used by the working group of the Forum for Pro-rectors of Planning and Management – FORPLAD and finally, the third formula was suggested by the College of Prorectors of graduation – COGRAD/ANDIFES. The courses with the highest average evasion rates found in the survey were: Social Sciences, Art Direction, Philosophy, Physics, Literature, Pedagogy and Chemistry. With the purpose of obtaining data, such as data collection instrument, 4 (four) questionnaires (validated research instruments) were applied, with objective and multiplechoice questions. The data obtained through the questionnaires were tabulated and exposed for comparison between the groups involved in the teaching-learning process. For qualitative analysis the software used was Webqda version 3.0. The main reasons that led students to evade the course were: the choice for another course, financial difficulty and difficulty transportation from UFG to home and vice versa. Socio-political-economic factors are the most cited as cause of evasion in the undergraduate courses at UFG. It is concluded that the academic trajectory is defined under a social standpoint, but it is influenced by the relationships defined in the academic area and groups in which the students are in.
