2018-2019 Scholarships

Özyeğin University awards tuition waivers to newly-admitted undergraduate students based on their Higher Education Institutions Examination (YKS) scores and their program codes in the 2018-2019 academic year. Tuition waivers awarded at the time of enrollment are called “Admission Scholarships”. In addition to admission scholarships/discounts, Özyeğin University also awards additional scholarships/discounts to eligible students who fulfill the requirements below. Should the students be eligible for multiple additional tuition waivers,  students are awarded each additional scholarship for which they meet the requirements.

Students who were placed in our University’s undergraduate program with full or partial scholarships/tuition waivers based on the central placement examination (YKS) are entitled to these scholarships/tuition waivers, including students who previously enrolled in any university with full or partial scholarship and later withdrew, dismissed, or graduated from their universities.

Support Scholarships for Postgraduate Studies

Özyeğin University awards non-refundable /non-repayable support scholarships/grants of 40,000 USD to OzU graduates who are admitted without scholarships to doctoral programs at the top 20 universities listed in the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Rankings in the year of their graduation.

The support scholarship is granted only for the first year of their programs.     

Terms and Continuity of Scholarships and Tuition Discounts

Admission scholarships, additional scholarship (tuition waivers, cash stipends, dining/housing/transportation support) and other discounts are non-refundable, and are awarded for up to six academic years. These scholarships are awarded for a maximum of two years in the English Language Preparatory Program; and a maximum of five years in undergraduate programs.    Transferred semesters, if any, are deducted from the total term of scholarship for undergraduate programs. 

Admission scholarships/discounts and additional tuition waivers/discounts are not merit-based, and will continue to be awarded regardless of the students’ academic standing. They cover fall and spring semesters as well as summer sessions over the term of scholarship. 

However, students must achieve a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 out of 4.00 at the end of each academic year in order to be eligible to sustain their additional scholarships (cash stipends, dining/housing/transportation support). Failure to do so will result in the loss of additional scholarships in the subsequent semester(s). However, additional scholarships may be reinstated if students succeed in meeting the requirements again. Additional scholarships are awarded in the semesters in which the students duly renew their registrations and regularly attend their courses. The scholarship of students who have taken leaves of absence or received the status of “external preparatory students for TRACE”  are suspended during the respective semesters in which they no longer attend the University. The scholarship of these students will be reinstated once they renew their registration and resume their studies at the University.

Students will lose all of their their scholarships/tuition discounts/additional scholarships if they fail to renew their registration and/or interrupt their undergraduate studies without the approval of the University, or if they renew their registration but fail to attend classes, and/or if they exceed their maximum period of time allowed to maintain their scholarships.  Should students be subject to any disciplinary action, all of their scholarships/tuition discounts/additional scholarships can be terminated as per “the Principles for the Impact of Disciplinary Actions on Scholarships and Student Privileges”, which are determined by the Senate.

Students who fail to complete the English Preparatory Program by the end of their second academic year lose their previously granted scholarships and discounts, and their enrollment at the University is terminated. Students who exercise their right to sit the TRACE examinations as per Article 44 of Law No:2547 and prove their English proficiency may matriculate  their undergraduate programs. These students are required to pay the current year’s tuition set for students who were admitted in the same year with them, provided that they never received the status of unregistered student during their period of study at the University. The tuition waivers awarded to such students at their first admission to the University (admission scholarships) are reinstated, excluding cash stipends, dining, and housing/ transportation support, if any. On the other hand, among students who exercised their right to sit the TRACE examination and matriculated to their undergraduate programs, those who previously received the status of unregistered student during the periods they previously studied at the University must pay the tuition fee applicable to newly admitted students with no scholarship.
