Starting with the first year, every undergraduate student at Koç University is assigned an Academic Advisor. This advisor is responsible for assisting the student in matters ranging from adapting to the university environment, giving guidance throughout their academic programs, course selection to career planning. In order to be able to help students, faculty should be familiar with the undergraduate curriculum, as well as university rules and regulations.

Academic policies and procedures are developed to address new problems and to keep up with changing curriculum matters. Academic Council decisions regarding new policies and changes are posted on Academic Policies section on Academic Planning and Development Directorate’s (APDD) website regularly. If an advisor has questions that this webpage does not answer, he/she should contact the Academic Planning and Development Directorate, the Registrar’s & Student Affairs Directorate, or the Dean’s Office.

Some specific duties of advisors are listed below:
