Students may take a leave of absence due to a reason of force majeure or prior to taking courses at another institution. To take a leave of absence for one or more semesters, a student should submit a petition to the University Executive Council through KUSIS. Students who are granted a leave of absence can return to their studies at the end of the designated leave period without any need for further approval. If the student is taking courses at another intuition during the leave period and would like to transfer those courses to Koç University, the student must get approval from the College Council. Students to take a leave of absence must complete all school registration procedures including registration renewal.
