Welcome to Koç University. It is a great pleasure to have you all among us.
We wish you a happy and successful semester. Here, you will be receiving a world class education and be a part of programs that will give you the opportunity to develop intellectually, socially and personally. We have the utmost faith that you will gain more than just knowledge and learn to be self-sufficient, self-confident, socially aware, well-spoken, environmentally conscious and responsible individuals.
Registration will be online and will take place between 31 August – 4 September 2020.
All students entering Koç University will be required to take the ‘Koç University English Proficiency Exam’ (KUEPE). KUEPE will take place on 14 September 2020 at Koç University Rumelifeneri campus at 12:00. Exam results will be posted on the ELC website (elc.ku.edu.tr) on 22 September 2020.
Check-in’s to Dormitories will be available between 27 September – 4 October 2020 on a gradual basis.
College education is very different from what most of you have experienced in high school. For some of you this is the first time you are away from home, for most of you this will be an exposure to a very different education system. In order to help you adapt to this new academic and social lifestyle, we have arranged a new student ‘Orientation Program’ which will be online this year. The online ‘Orientation Program’ will take place between 15-24 September 2020; for further details please refer to http://uyumgünleri.ku.edu.tr. During the online orientation, you will have opportunities to meet with the deans of the colleges, professors, your advisors and mentors, who will guide you through your first year at Koç University. You will also watch informational videos prepared by the administrative units and student clubs.
Please be advised that the online ‘Orientation Program’ is mandatory.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
Dr. Yiğit Sayın
Dean of Students
