General Information

  • The tuition fee payments are determined by Article 46 of the Higher Education Council decision number 2547, which can be found at the following link:
  • Those who are obliged to pay tuition fees make their payment at the beginning of the related semester to be eligible for registration and renew registration.
  • Those who did not make the tuition fee payments, and did not consider on leave by the administrative board of the University cannot complete the registration process and avail students' rights.
  • Those who did not renew the registration can complete the registration for the paid semester and do not have to make payment for the non-registered semester.
  • The actual semester is considered for payments. The probation semester is not considered.
  • The registration program controls tuition fee payment.
  • 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 are made at the banks' online tuition fee payment accounts stated on Bank Account Numbers. When paying tuition, students should state their ID numbers and have their ID numbers printed on the receipt.
  • There is no wire transfer charge for payments to ONLINE ACCOUNTS from bank branches in or outside METU.
  • On the cases of tuition fee refund with an excuse, 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 made at the banks.
