Log In to the System
Log into the system via the “Students”---> "Course List Preparation" link using your Student ID number and password, which were supplied during pre-registration.
Note: Because of the rush of students is trying to get onto the system at the same time, occasionally the system reaches full capacity and automatically sends out any of the following messages:
Don’t Panic! Usually things calm down enough in a few hours and you will be able to get into the system.
Leaving the Registration Page
Once you have logged into the system, add the courses for which you would like to register to your list.
In the "Quick Add" screen, enter the code and section of the course.

|Class quota restrictions||The course is not available for the students of that year or semester.|

|Course not open for your department||The course is not available for the department that accepted you as a student to Boğaziçi. The “you need the consent of the instructor” statement means that you need the personal approval of the instructor in order to be able to register for the course|

How to Make a Consent Request
Click on “Consent Requests” below the main screen and send a message to the instructor of the course. Write a message stating providing name and number of the course you would like to take.
To check the status of a consent request, click on the “Current Consents” tab, and view the details by clicking on “Show/Hide Details.”
Viewing Your Schedule
Before sending your schedule for approval, you can use the “Schedule” screen to check whether you have any conflicts in your program. You can also use a Boğaziçi University website called Soppus (www.soppus.com) that helps you lay out your schedule onscreen and avoid scheduling conflicts.
Final Approval of Your Schedule
Your academic advisor must approve your course list within the registration period. Submit your schedule to your advisor using the “Send to Approval” button. Be sure to check back frequently to see whether your advisor has approved your list.
One week after courses begin, the registration system is reopened the Add/Drop Period, when you can modify your course list by adding or dropping courses. Your modified course lists must be approved by your academic advisor. Be sure to check on the progress of this approval as it is the last chance to make changes to your schedule before the registration system is closed.
Withdrawing from a Course during the Semester
After the Add/Drop Period, you can modify your course list only by withdrawing from courses. Courses from which you have withdrawn will appear as a “W” on your transcripts. Please note that the option to withdraw from a class is only available for a certain time period, roughly one month after the Add/Drop Period. Please see the academic calendar for specific dates.
Petitioning for Withdrawal or Leave of Absence
Remote Final exams
1. Obtain a letter from the home university stating that there is a conflict of dates.
