TUITION AND FEES

Each academic year, the University Executive Council announces the tuition and fees that students must pay in contribution toward current service costs of institutions of higher education, following the enactment of the relevant decree by the Council of Ministers.

  • The Registration Process
    1. Students who are not subject to tuition and fees  will have access to the registration system on the date announced in the academic calendar. Such students will be able to enroll for the relevant semester and benefit from rights granted to all students upon approval by the academic advisor of the course schedule they have prepared and submitted within the registration period specified in the academic calendar.
    2. Students who are subject to tuition and fees will be able to access the registration system once they meet their financial obligations. They will be able to enroll for the relevant semester and benefit from rights granted to all students upon approval by the academic advisor of the course schedule they have prepared and submitted within the registration period specified in the academic calendar.
    • If students who are subject to tuition and fees   attempt to access the OBIKAS System before paying their tuition fees, the system will display an "incomplete payment" error message.
    • Payments can be made via ATMs, bank offices or Internet banking to Garanti Bank using STUDENT NUMBER, during the period specified in the academic calendar. Payments should not be made by EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer) or any kind of money transfer. If otherwise advised by University authorities under special circumstances, the relevant payment receipts should be kept until graduation.
    • While making an online tuition payment (which you can make in partial payments), Tuition (HRC) option should be selected. Do not make any payment other than for HRC (tuition), even if otherwise advised by bank personnel. You will not be asked to pay a Registration Fee (KYU).
