Within the scope of the Framework Regulation on Applied Education in Higher Education, it is decided by the Board of Directors of the Unit, under the supervision of our Rectorate, that the courses including laboratory, workshop, field work, internship, vocational training in business, etc. that require practice can be carried out through face-to-face education, taking into account the accommodation status of the students;

Upon the request of the students who can continue their applied education, those themselves and their first degree relatives who reside in the provinces affected by the earthquake, they can receive this education as special students in the equivalent diploma programs of the university in the provinces where their residences or temporary residences are located;

At the end of the spring semester, the applied trainings they are successful in are completely deducted from the credit load;

No additional tuition and training fees are requested from them;

Special student requests should be made within 3 weeks from the start of education, taking into account the start date of the 2022-2023 spring semester;

If it is requested, students are entitled to freeze the 2022-2023 spring semester registrations, which means this period will not be deducted from the maximum education period of the program;

For the students enrolled in Associate, Undergraduate and Graduate programs, those who have exams such as final, make-up, excuse, single course exams for the 2022-2023 fall semester on February 6 and afterwards, and those who can not attend the proficiency or thesis exam in graduate programs, the said exams will be held at a later date to be determined by the administrative boards of the relevant units.
