Further Details on 4th Year Elective (RE-TE) Courses (2017/2018 Spring)

As you have been informed before, the RE-TE course selection and placement system that we have used last semester will be executed this semester as well. The system is described briefly as follows and sample pages are attached below:

  • The application procedure will be handled online via http://civil.ce.metu.edu.tr/utilities/#/elective
  • On this page, you can view your past curriculum and find out for which courses you can apply.
  • If there is an error in your curriculum on this page, you can contact sebay@metu.edu.tr or gcivas@metu.edu.tr and request a correction.
  • You will see the list of elective courses to check if you are eligible or not. The courses you can apply are highlighted in green. From this list, you can apply to the courses you would prefer.
  • You can remove your application or re-apply to courses until February 5th, 2018 (15:00).
  • There is no limit to the number of courses you can apply. However, you can be placed to any course you have applied in a certain RE group (so if you do not want to be placed in a course do not select it).
  • There is no priority in your course selections. You will be placed to the offered courses by the course instructor based on the allocated quota determined by the Department. If you are accepted to one of the courses you have applied in a certain RE group, then you cannot be placed anymore to the other courses you have applied in the same RE group.
  • After this application period, the instructors will accept or ignore your applications between 5-7 February 2018. During which, you can check your registration status at http://civil.ce.metu.edu.tr/utilities/#/elective
  • The instructors will be able to display; your CGPA, the order in which the students applied to their course, and the order of your application between the courses in the same RE-TE group, on their corresponding web page.
  • The system will also check the conflicts in your “Course Schedule” and if a course that you have been registered is at the same time with another course that you applied for, the instructor will not be able to accept your application anymore. Therefore, please be careful while making your course applications. You can check the schedule of the courses using http://sis.metu.edu.tr.
  • You will be able to see the course quota interactively when you login to the system. The quota of the courses will not be increased.
  • If you would like to drop a course that you have been placed, then you will need to contact the instructor of the course. Unless the instructor drops you from the list, you will not be able to select another course in the same group or at the same class time with that course.

There will be a second phase of selections & placements period in between February 8th and February 16th 2018, during which, you will be able to make new applications, but cannot remove the existing ones. Therefore, you should keep in mind that the applications you made during the 1st phase will still remain active through the second phase. The second phase will be interactive and as soon as you applied for a course you may be accepted.
