Special students are those who are allowed to take some courses, although they are not enrolled in one of the programs in the university. No diplomas or titles are given to special students. However, they can get official transcripts at the end of each semester. If they are accepted as a graduate student to METU later, the grades which are approved by the concerned administrative committee can be added to their grade point average.
Who can apply?
Students currently enrolled in other universities or institutions of higher education, or who have graduated from such institutions, may apply to attend specific courses at METU as special students.
