Courses / Course Registration
Course registration for students, who are at Preparatory School is made by School of Foreign Language. Course registration for students, who are newly started to the program, at their first semester (fall semester) is made automatically. Course selections for the on going semesters are made by students themselves under the “Course Registration” tab on SPARKS. Students, who are newly registered through external transfer and who have been exempted from courses, make their course registration themselves through their SPARKS accounts.
Maximum credit load for a student with a grade point average of 2.00 and more may get additional credits in the form of 6 KHAS or 12 ECTS credits in addition to the course load that they take during each semester.
During the first two semesters, which they start attending their undergraduate education, a student may not take credits that are more than the credit load specified on the curriculum. This period is one semester for students whose adaptations are made to the second semester at the end of the course exemption procedures. This rule does not apply to students who are adjusted to third or higher semester at the end of the course exemption procedures. After the first two semesters, the students GPA will determine how many credits the student can enroll in.
Students with a general point average of 2.00 and above at the end of any semester are considered successful students. However, these students have to repeat the courses they failed. These students can take up to 6 KHAS credits on top of their credit load, and students who are subject to the ECTS credit system can take up to 12 ECTS more credits.
Students with a general point average below 2.00 at the end of any semester are considered probationary students. Students on probation cannot get more credit than the credit load stipulated in their education plans for the semester they are in.
Students whose general point average falls below 1.80 for two consecutive semesters are considered unsuccessful students in the following semester. Unsuccessful students must take the courses they failed in the previous semester, if they are offered in the semester they registered. Provided that they do not exceed the credit load stipulated in the lesson plans for the semester they are in, students can take new course(s) to increase their grades if they wish.
The course credit load of the students who can graduate with a maximum of 6 KHAS or 12 ECTS credits at the end of the semester in which they are enrolled, is determined by the relevant unit administrative board, regardless of the status of the student, including the credit of a single course that can be taken at the end of that semester, 6 KHAS or 12 ECTS credits can be increased.

Students can see who their advisors are from their SPARKS and MyKHAS accounts and can send them an email via sparks. An academic advisor, who is one of the faculty academic member, is assigned to every student registered at the university, starting from the first year. The first person that students will consult regarding any academic subject is this faculty academic member.
The assignation and changes of advisors are decided by the Faculty Deanery. If you want to change your advisor, you must apply to the relevant Faculty Deanery with a petition.
Academic topics to be consulted; course selection, especially taking prerequisite courses on time, double major, course repetition, summer education, course transfer from outside the university and similar issues. Advisors guide students about the selection of courses suitable for the subject they want to focus on and the graduate program options available in their fields. Each semester, during the registration period, the academic advisor examines the courses chosen by the student, checks and approves their suitability with the program.
At the end of each semester, the success of the students is determined by the Semester Grade Point Average and GPA.
It is calculated by adding the results obtained by multiplying the letter grade coefficient of each course taken by the student and participating in the grade point average by the credits of the course, and dividing this sum by the total credits received. The result of division is rounded to two digits after the comma. If this process is done for the courses taken in a semester, the Semester Grade Point Average (GPA) is obtained, if it is done for all the courses taken until that time, the General Grade Point Average (GPA) is obtained.
*Courses with P grades and non-credit courses are not included in the grade point average.
** When a course is repeated to repeat a failed course or to increase the grade received from a course, the student’s most recent grade is valid. The student’s old letter grade or grades are not taken into account in the calculation of the semester and GPA.
