On July 6, 2001, the Governor of Minas Gerais accredits the University Center of Patos de Minas - UNIPAM - as the entity responsible for current and future college, getting the Educational Foundation of Patos de Minas - FEPAM - maintainer of the institution.
With the accreditation of the University Center of Patos de Minas, the number of courses the institution has increased 160% in six years, from 10 to 26 the number of courses offered.

Also in 2001, authorized the operation of the course Information Systems.
