Students may take a leave of absence due to various reasons such as health issues or taking courses at another institution. To take a leave of absence for one or more semesters, a student should submit a petition to the College Council of their related college through KUSIS. Those students whose leave of absence request is approved can return to their studies at the end of designated leave period without needing to do anything. 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.
