IMPORTANT ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

Here we present some of the important academic policies and procedures used in the implementation of the regulations and administration of the academic programs.

1. ATTENDANCE POLICY

Students who do not attend 1/3 of the lectures in core and freshman courses shall not receive F automatically. However, instructors have the right to mandate such a regulation in any course if they include a statement with similar effect in their syllabi. (revised according to the University Academic Council dated September 25, 2009; effective starting in Fall 2009)
The medical excuses count towards 1/3 allowed absentees.

2. MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION

The medium of instruction at Koç University is English with the exception of certain designated courses and programs. Therefore lectures including those given in the labs and problem sessions and the student participation must be carried out in English.

3. DOUBLE MAJORS
