SUMMER SCHOOL DIRECTIVE

 

Middle East Technical University Summer School Directive can be found at the following address: http://oidb.metu.edu.tr/en/middle-east-technical-university-directive-summer-school-0

 

Department of Basic English students who have not qualified for the English Proficiency Exam (EPE) in June because their yearly average grade is between 49.50 and 64.49, and/or those who have failed in the June EPE may attend Summer School if they wish to do so. 

 

OPENED/CLOSED COURSES

 

The courses scheduled to be offered in the Summer School can be found at: http://oibs3.metu.edu.tr/View_Program_Course_Details_64/

 

According to the decision of the University Administrative Board, the minimum course capacity in the Summer School is 20. If the number of registered students for a course is below than 20 (except for the courses that must be kept open through the justified decision of the Administrative Board of a Faculty/Graduate School/Technical Vocational School of Higher Education), the course is closed. Thus, a course may be closed upon examination after the end of the registration period. 

 

COURSES OFFERED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS 

 

Due to the limited capacity of the courses offered by the Department of Mathematics, it is not always possible to meet the high demand. For registration provisions set the Department of Mathematics (priorities, course capacity update hours, etc), students must also follow the announcements on

 

http://math.metu.edu.tr/

 

For courses dropped during interactive registration, capacity information will be updated three times a day at 09.00, 13.00 and 16.00. Among below mentioned courses, whose capacity is full, students can add the related courses after the capacity information is updated. This procedure is also valid for group changes.

SUMMER SCHOOL TUITION FEES

 

Information on summer school tuition fees can be found at: http://oidb.metu.edu.tr/en/summer-school-tuition-fee

 

All students have to pay tuition fee during the summer school.

 

Tuition fee payments of international students having scholarship are made by the relevant institutions.

 

Summer School tuition fees are calculated per course credit. In other words, the students pay a total tuition fee equivalent to the sum of the departmental credit fee for each course enrolled in. For non-credit courses (excluding Graduate Seminar, Term Project, Special/Advanced Studies), the tuition fee is to be paid over two credits.

 

If students in a non-thesis graduate degree evening program take a course from another non-thesis graduate degree evening program, they pay the tuition fee per credit for the course of the other program in addition to the fee for their own program. 

 

BANK RECEIPTS    

 

Payments must be made to the “On-Line Bank Account Numbers for Tuition Payments” of the banks listed in “Bank Account Numbers for Tuition Payments” under payments. When depositing their tuition fee to the bank, students should state their ID numbers, and have this printed on the bank receipt. 

 

There is no wire transfer charge for tuition payments made to “On-Line Bank Account Numbers” from bank branches (in or outside the city).

 

Students are advised to keep their original bank receipts, as they are obliged to submit them in case of tuition reimbursement with a valid excuse. 

 

TUITION FEE PAYMENT CHECK ON THE REGISTRATION PROGRAM

 

The data exchange concerning tuition payments is done online by the banks.  Students can enter the registration program as soon as they have made the payment.

 

The registration program checks the students’ payment data. Students who do not make any / full payment cannot enter the registration program.  

 

Students are advised to check the information about their payment at the web address indicated below before registrations start:   

http://oibs.metu.edu.tr/Student_Semester_Details_61

  

TUITION FEE REIMBURSEMENT   

 

The tuition fee paid for courses which are not opened or are closed due to the low number of registering students can be reimbursed provided that the student does not miss the “deadline for justifiable tuition fee reimbursement applications” announced in the academic calendar. 

 

In order to receive tuition reimbursement, students need to fill out the form in the following link, print it out, and submit it to the Tuition Fee Office, together with the original payment document (students in non-thesis graduate evening programs should have the payment document approved by their departments).
