To complete the English Preparatory Program, students are required to pass the Koç University English Proficiency Exam (KUEPE).
In order for students to be eligible to take the KUEPE, they must get enough points from the specified courses during the semester (Intermediate overall course grade: 80 / Upper-intermediate overall course grade: 65).
Students who do not get a passing score in the proficiency exam will enroll in and complete the course that they have to take in the program as they will not have completed the program.
First Year Students (Fall, Spring, Summer Semesters):

The requirements for accepted outside exam scores for ELC promotion and test centers also apply to outside exams taken after the completion of two years in the ELC. Second year students can study in the ELC in the summer semester but are not required to do so.
