Course Equivalence

  • For course equivalencies you need to have the Coordinator of the Erasmus Program in your department approve the courses you will take at the university abroad and the equivalence of these courses at IUE before going abroad.
  • If you need a change in the courses you will take, get the approval of the International Relations Office and the Coordinator of the Erasmus Program for the courses you will change.
  • Each course that the students take abroad within the framework of the Erasmus Program is equivalent to a course seen as suitable by IUE.
  • The courses that are not seen equivalent exactly can be seen as equivalent to other courses in different departments.
  • The courses taken abroad and not completed successfully can be taken again at IUE if the content of the courses are the same. If the content is not the same, a new course is taken at IUE instead having been determined by the relevant department.
  • The transcripts belonging to the courses taken at universities with the Erasmus Program are accepted within 5 weeks from the beginning of the following semester at the latest.
  • The grades of the courses taken abroad are converted to the grade system of our university and written on the students’ transcripts.
  • The course registrations of the students whose transcripts have been received are made by taking their GPAs into consideration. Their GPAs are determined according to their converted success grades.
  • If the transcripts are not sent by the university abroad, the previous year’s GPA is taken into consideration in the registration process.
  • For the courses given Y-Attended grade abroad, an S-Satisfactory grade is given at IUE.
  • If the courses taken abroad have an equivalent in Double Major or Minor Program, these courses are shown in the course equivalent table which also has to be signed Double Major/Minor department coordinator. These courses are shown on the Double Major or Minor transcript. The other courses are shown on the transcript of the major.
  • The courses given NI-Not Included grade because our university does not have the equivalent course are shown on the transcript of the major.
  • If the students take more courses than their departments determine and if they can not complete these courses successfully, they have to take another equivalent course at IUE.
  • The foreign language courses that the students take abroad apart from their compulsory second language courses are shown on their transcript of the major. However, these courses are not counted as elective courses.
  • If the students take module courses at the partner university and these module courses are decided to be equivalent of only one course, grade point average of these courses are taken into consideration in assessing the grade of this course.
  • Shown in the transcripts of some universities, the grade “Pass” is equivalent of  the grade CC, and “Fail”  is the equivalent of FF.
  • If the students drop the courses indicated in their learning agreement without getting the approval of their ERASMUS coordinator and if these courses are shown in the transcript given by the partner university, the grades of these courses are assessed as “FF”. In this application, for the students who have more courses in their transcript and learning agreement, the number of courses that will be taken into consideration are decided according to the cumulative grade point average of students in the related semester.
