General Information

  • The tuition fee payments are determined by Article 46 of the Higher Education Law No. 2547, which can be found at the following link: www.mevzuat.gov.tr
  • Those who are obliged to pay tuition fees must complete their payment at the beginning of the related semester in order to be eligible for interactive course registration.
  • Those who do not complete the tuition fee payments without any excuse approved by the administrative board of the University cannot register for the related semester and avail the rights originating from studentship.
  • Those who do not make tuition fee payments and therefore do not register for a semester are not required to make the payments of that not-registered semester once they would like to renew their course registration for a later semester. 
  • The actual semester is considered for payments. The probation semester is not considered.
  • The interactive course registration program makes automatic controls of the tuition fee payment. Once the students make the payment, the system will be updated automatically and the student will be able to login to the course registration program.
  • The tuition fee procedures are carried out by the Tuition Fee Office (Arts and Science Dean's Building, 2nd floor). For any problem regarding tuition fee payments, students should visit the tuition fee office.

Payments

  • Tuition fee payments can be made at the banks listed here (http://oidb.metu.edu.tr/en/tuition-fee-payments-0). Banks' branches, ATMs, and internet banking tools can be used to make the payment. When paying tuition, students should state their student ID numbers and have their ID numbers printed on the receipt.
  • For potential cases of tuition fee refund, the students are obliged to keep their bank receipts.
  • The data exchange between banks and the university is online concerning tuition payment. The payment information is reflected in the registration program when completed at the banks.
  • The interactive course registration program makes automatic controls of the tuition fee payment. Once the students make the payment, the system will be updated automatically and the student will be able to login to the course registration program.
  • The tuition fee amounts for evening graduate programs without a thesis are calculated on a credit basis. Thus, total payment control is made according to the number of credits that the course requires. Payment for a non-credit course is made as it is a 2-credit course (except for Graduate Seminar, Term Project, and Special/Advanced Studies).
