Documents Required for Registration

Needed to fill in during registration.
  • ​​Official Acceptance Letter​
  • Original of Diploma
If the diploma/graduation certificate is not in English or Turkish, their English or Turkish notarized translations are submitted.
  • Diploma Equivalency Certificate
It certifies that the education you have taken is equivalent to the education in Turkey. Obtaining a Diploma Equivalent Certificate for your high school diploma is requisite in order to complete your registration in any Turkish Higher Education Institution.
This document is requested from and issued by the Provincial Directorate of National Education of the city the student will study in. The period of investigation by the National Education Directorate can vary from one student to another. Decisions to issue a Diploma Equivalence certificate are at the discretion of the Directorate of National Education only. Any higher education institution cannot guarantee a successful Diploma Equivalence application.
Failure to obtain a Diploma Equivalence certificate would cancel any pre-registration and acceptance status to the University.
It is better and easier for you to apply for the certificate of the equivalence while you are in your country. You need find the office of Educational Attaché in your country. Please click here​ to see the list of the educational attaché in your country.
If there is not any Educational Attaché in your home country or if you have not taken your certificate of the equivalence, yet you should apply as soon as you arrive to Turkey. Bear in mind that the application process for the certificate of the equivalence may take a long time.
The students who did not submit their valid residence permit at the time of the application will most probably get the temporary certificate of the equivalence. Then, if they bring the residence permit, their permanent certificate of equivalence will be issued.
