PAYMENT REFUND PROCEDURE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS/APPLICANTS

Payment refund applications for tuition fee payments, tuition fee payments for summer school, application fee payments for EPE, and the payments that are made for documents and services of Registrar’s Office, of the international students/applicants are the same as the instructions above. The process of the payment refund for international students/applicants can be made in two ways because of the challenges arising from not having their own personal bank account in one of the Turkish banks.

1.If the student has a Turkish bank account in his/her name, by completing the instructions above, he/she can forward his/her payment refund request to the e-mail address mentioned above in payback refund dates that given in the academic calendar.

2. If the student does not have a Turkish bank account in his/her name, he/she can request that payment refund to be deposited to another Turkish account which does not belong to him/her. In this case, by applying to the Turkish consulates and embassies in their country or notaries in Turkey, our international students/applicants can have a notarized document that has been approved, so that, their payback can be deposited to the Turkish bank account they request. After having the notarized document, along with the payment receipt requested and the payment refund form, it can be send to the katkipayi@metu.edu.tr via e-mail.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE: Unless the payment refund can be made in any of these two ways, it cannot be made to another bank account which is not a Turkish bank account and the amount which cannot be refunded cannot be transferred to another payment of the student or cannot be used for any other operation (For example, if the refund of tuition fee for summer school cannot be made, the student cannot transfer this money to his/her next tuition fee payment or next tuition fee payment for summer school.) In that case, the amount that is remaining and the rights of requesting refund of the students are reserved. The student/applicant can request a payback by applying at the earliest payback refund duration stated in the academic calendar when they have a Turkish bank account in their name or when they have a notarized document for the payment can be made to a Turkish bank account belonging to another person.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE 2: Via notarized document, the application of payback refund to a Turkish bank account which does not belong to the student himself/herself is only for international students. Turkish students cannot benefit from it.
