GENERAL REMARKS

Scores to serve as the basis of evaluation for years in which no student was admitted:

a) In case there are no minimum score to compare against, as the program did not yet admit students back in the year in which the applicant student had taken the centralized exam for admission into the diploma program, the first year in which such a score existed shall be taken into consideration as the basis of evaluation.

b) In case no students were admitted into the relevant diploma program in the year the applicant student had taken the centralized exam for admission, despite the program accepting admissions in preceding years, no transfer can take place.

c) For programs which are not set to admit students in the year of transfer application, the quota stipulated on the Centralized University Exam Manual for the year the applicant had been admitted into her original program shall be taken into consideration:

Applications by students on leave: Having been on a leave from the program one is registered with does not preclude one from filing transfer applications. However, no transfers are allowed without having been studied in the original program for at least one semester.

Disciplinary action: The applications of the students who have been subjected to disciplinary action at a higher education institution, or who are not registered at the time, shall not be accepted. The student shall be required to submit a document attesting this status, in the application file.     

Talent exam: Even if the student was admitted to her original higher education institution on the basis of a talent exam, she can file transfer applications for only the programs where she meets the centralized exam placement score requirement of the university. However, transfers from outside the university are not allowed for programs admitting students on the basis of a talent exam. The transfers from within the university, to such programs, can, on the other hand, be effected on the basis of the academic achievement criteria only.

  • Scholarship status: The students who have been admitted on a scholarship in the original program shall be deemed to have forfeited the scholarship through the transfer, even if they meet the minimum score requirements of the applicable scholarship program.

Semester count mismatch: In case the student’s semester counts in the original program in another higher education institutions, and upon being granted admission into the University do not match, the student shall be deemed to have agreed to a delayed enrollment in the courses in the curriculum.

Grade Point Average at Graduation: The Grade Point Averages at the time of graduation shall be determined on the basis of the grades they received at the courses taken in the former diploma program and duly transferred, as well as the grades received at the transfer destination programs. However, when determining valedictorian status, only the grades received at ETÜ shall be taken into consideration for transfer students.

Transfer counts: The students who had transferred from the University to another institution of higher education through transfers on the basis of minimum score, can return back to the University, for once, through another transfer. They cannot transfer to another university on the basis of minimum score, though.

Foreign language proficiency requirement for the programs where English is the medium of instruction for at least 30 percent of the courses:

a) For transfers to the programs in this category, the foreign language proficiency requirement established in the University’s Directive on the Principles of Education and Teaching at English Language Preparatory Program, should be met.

b) The students who fail to submit a document attesting compliance with the foreign language proficiency requirement as per the University regulations, but who were found to have met other application requirements, can, at their discretion, take the Foreign Language Proficiency Exam (TOEFL ITP) organized by the Foreign Languages Department for new admissions. The names of the students who state their intent to take the said exam, on their application form, will be reported to the Foreign Languages Department. The exam fee of TRY 250 can be paid with a credit card between 9:00 and 18:00 on weekdays, at the Continuous Education Center located at the ground floor of the Foreign Languages Department building. The fee can be paid on the exam date as well, between 8:30 and 9:00.

c) The students who wish to transfer during the preparatory year, or to the first year, shall be admitted into the foreign language preparatory program, in case they fail to meet the foreign language proficiency requirement.  

Foreign language proficiency requirement for the programs where English is the medium of instruction for at least 30 percent of the courses, as applicable in the academic year 2017-2018: For the candidates filing an application in this category, the medium of instruction applicable in the program they intend to transfer to, as of the year of registration with the original higher education institution, shall apply.
