2. Students who do not renew their academic registrations become unregistered students and cannot take classes and exams during their unregistered periods, and cannot benefit from their student rights.

3. Course load is the total credits of the courses taken by a student in any semester. A maximum of 2 courses can be taken on top of the prescribed course load in a semester (the credits of 2 courses are not important). Only double major (DMP) and graduate students (those who achieve 60% of the entire curriculum; for example 80/133 credits) can take additional courses upon the decision of the faculty board of directors.
The credits of the ISLT/BBA 222 Entrepreneurship Applications (2-0)2 course and the courses taken within the scope of the KYP 001 program, which will be opened every semester, will not be added to the total course load credit in the semester. Students will be able to take this course in any semester they wish, regardless of the credit load constraint.
The student must first take the VF, FF courses that he failed. In case of repetition of the course, the student who gets an FF grade is required to attend; A maximum of one hour of overlap is allowed in the weekly syllabus. Students with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 and above who have no failed courses from the lower semesters can take 1 course from the upper semesters.
