1- The form should be filled thoroughly and be signed by the related authorities. The credit information of the courses regarding both METU and ECTS credits should be complete.

2-Detailed course content (i.e syllabus) of all courses to be taken in the institution to be visited should be included in the form. At a minumum these should include the ECTS credit of the course, weekly hours or total lecture hours in the semester, catalog description and detailed content information.

3-The equivalence (after returning from the Erasmus programme)  of each course to be taken in the visited institution should be stated either on the course content information printout, on a seperate document or on the academic approval form. This equivalence should clearly be indicated by the Erasmus coordinator of the department and/or the instructor offering the equivalent course by signing the aforementioned document(s).

4-In order to ensure full recognition within the framework of Erasmus+ and other exchange programs, with the decision of the METU Exchange Programs Commission dated 05.02.2024, all successful/unsuccessful courses taken by students within the scope of the exchange programs carried out at our University should be included in the transcripts of our University, and the successful courses should be stated in a separate statement. It was decided to write the METU equivalents and to indicate the names of the failed courses in the other institution in the notes section of the transcripts. For this reason, the following Academic Approval Form Return document must be used in the course substitution processes carried out in our Department and Faculty as of 05.02.2024, and all successful/unsuccessful courses taken by the students at the other institution must be stated in this document, without the student's discretion.

5-Student transcript should be included.

6-In accordance with the Engineering faculty board decision no: 2010 956, a petition, stating that the cumulative grade point average  (CGPA) of the engineering student to study abroad via the exchange program should not be below 2.5 and the cumulative and semester grade point averages (CGPA and GPA) of the student in the semester prior to the participation in the program should not be below 2.5, should be signed and added to the attachments.
