Students who fulfil the necessary conditions can apply to the relevant Faculty Dean's Offices at the beginning of the third semester at the earliest and at the beginning of the fifth semester at the latest for those who wish to double major (double major) and minor (minor) programmes at the beginning of the third semester at the earliest and at the beginning of the sixth semester at the latest.

In order to be able to study double major with scholarship, an average of 3.25 out of 4 is required. To apply for minor programmes, the GPA must be at least 2.5 out of 4. At our university, students with a CGPA of 3.25 and above can enroll in double major programmes and students with a CGPA of 3.00 and above can enroll in minor programmes with full scholarship.

In order to start the Double Major and Minor programmes, a learning protocol must be signed between the relevant departments, including the additional courses, equivalent courses and common courses that the student must take, and this protocol must be accepted by the senate of our university. More detailed information on the implementation of DM and minor programmes can be found in the Yeditepe University Associate and Undergraduate Education and Training Regulations published on our university website.

The student may leave the DM or minor programme voluntarily or under the conditions stipulated in the undergraduate regulations. If the student leaves the DM or minor programme, he/she does not have to repeat the courses in the failed DM or minor programme.

A second major undergraduate diploma is awarded to the student who has obtained the right to graduate from the main undergraduate programme in which he/she is enrolled and who completes the DM programme, and a minor certificate is awarded to the student who completes the minor programme.
