**Internal Transfer via Central Placement Score **

Information on internal transfer via central placement score can be reached at the Universty’s website (TR): http://adaylar.boun.edu.tr/tr-TR/Sayfa/Basvuru/MerkeziKurumIciYatayGecis

These applications are processed by the relevant units of the University, and the admisision decisions are made by the University Executive Committee. The Transfer Committe of the Department of Economics determines the transferable courses of the admitted candidates.

**Internal Transfer**

Every academic year, the quotas and the application requirements for the internal transfer is announced at the University’s website: http://adaylar.boun.edu.tr/tr-TR/Sayfa/Basvuru/Kurum_Ici_Yatay_Gecis/

APPLICATION

Applications are made to the Registrar’s Office at the announced dates. Applicants must have satisfied all the application requirements. For the minimum application requirements, visit the website above

PRE-EVALUATION

Only the applications of the candidates who satisfy the requirements below will be evaluated.

**i)
****Minimum GPA:** The applicant must
meet the minimum GPA requirement announced. **For 2019-2020 academic year Fall term, the minimum GPA requirement is
3.00/4.00.**

** **

ii)
**Economics course
requirement:** The applicant must have taken **at
least one economics course per semester (s)he has studied and passed them with
a grade at least CC**. Two of these courses must be EC 101 and EC 102.

iii)
**Mathematics course
requirement:** The applicant must have taken **two
calculus courses MATH 101 and MATH 102 and passed them with a grade at least CC**.
These courses may be taken (if offered) at Boğaziçi Universtiy Summer School (**http://www.summer.boun.edu.tr/**). The applicant’s
file will be evaluated only if (s)he passes these courses with grades at least
CC.

iv)
**Minimum placement
score:** Applicant must submit the score card of the exam that has been used in her/his
placement to the undergraduate program that (s)he is currently enrolled.
YGS-LYS/ TYT-AYT or SAT or YÖS scores can be documented. If the applicant is
placed by YGS-LYS/ TYT-AYT, the official score card showing the number of
correct and incorrect answers in Mathematics and Turkish tests must be
submitted. An offical copy of this document can be obtained from ÖSYM or the
Registrar’s Office. If the applicant is placed by SAT or YÖS, the official
score card must be submitted.

EVALUATION

The Adjsuted Placement Score (APS) is calculated according to the formula given below for the applicants who satisfy the minimum GPA, Economics and Mathematics requirements. Only applicants who have the score of at least 2.5 are considered for evaluation.

**Calculating the Adjusted Placement Score (APS):**

**YKS (applicants placed in 2018
onwards)**

APS = [[(TYT Temel Matematik Doğru Sayısı + AYT Matematik Doğru Sayısı) - 0.25 * (TYT Temel Matematik Yanlış Sayısı + AYT Matematik Yanlış Sayısı)] / 80 ] * 3.5 + [( TYT Türkçe Doğru Sayısı - 0.25*TYT Türkçe Yanlış Sayısı)/40]*0.5 ≥ 2.5

**ÖSS (applicants palced in 2011-2017****)**

**APS = **[[(YGS
Temel Matematik Doğru Sayısı +LYS1 (Matematik + Geometri) DoğruSayısı) - 0.25*(YGS Temel Matematik Yanlış Sayısı + LYS1
(Matematik + Geometri)Yanlış Sayısı)]/120]*3.5 +[(YGSTürkçe
Doğru Sayısı - 0.25*YGS Türkçe Yanlış Sayısı)/40]*0.5 ≥ 2.5

**SAT (applicants
placed by SAT scores) **

The candidate must have received a minimum score of 35.5 out of 40 in the “Math” test and a total score of 65 out of 80 in the “Math” and “Reading” tests of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). In calculating APS, a score of 35.5 is mapped to a 2.5 on a 4-point scale, while a score of 40 is mapped to a score of 4. In calculating the Weighted Transfer Score (see below) only the Math score is used.

**YÖS (applicants placed by YÖS scores)**

YÖS scores are normalized such that the minimum YÖS score determined by the Boğaziçi University Economics Department in the year the applicant is placed to her/his current program is taken to be equivalent to a score of 2.5.

Applicants who do not meet the minimum APS score will not be considered for admission.

ADMISSION

The admission
criterion for the external transfer is the weighted transfer score (WTS). The
WTS is calculated for the applicants who satisfy all of the above
requirements. The WTS is the weighted
average of the applicant’s APS and transfer point average (TPA). The
Transfer Committee of the Department of Economics determines the transferable
courses. Transfer Point Average (TPA) is the weighted average of transferable
course grades where each course grade is weighted according to the course
credit number. TPA must meet the minimum requirement announced at the
application announcement**. ****For 2019-2020 academic year Fall term, the minimum
TPA requirement is 3.00/4.00.** The applicants who fail to meet the
minimum TNO requirement are not considered for admission.

**Calculating the Weighted Transfer Score**

WTS= %75 APS+ %25 TPA

Applicants satisfying the admission requirements are ranked according to their WTS’s and those up to the announced quota is admitted to the program.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF RESULTS

The admission decisions are announced at the University’s Announcement website.
