Dear faculties and students,
In response to the elevation of COVID-19 threat level, the followings are the matters regarding the courses, examinations, transfer applications, and others.
1. Courses: All courses in the school adopt the remote teaching method from May 17th to June 11th. If it is impossible to use the remote teaching method due to the nature of the course (for example, laboratory courses, practical courses, physical education courses, service-learning courses), make-up courses must be offered after June 11th. In principle, all make-up courses must be completed before June 30th (subjected to change depending on the pandemic situation). Note that during the period of remote teaching, teachers must pay attention to student’s learning outcomes and check teaching effectiveness (according to the notification from the Ministry of Education on May 15th).
2. Course exams: In-person classroom exams will be suspended for two weeks from May 17th to May 28th in order to minimize the student’s gathering indoor (whether this temporary suspension is continued after May 28th will be announced depending on the pandemic situation).
3. The oral exam of MS and Ph.D. thesis defense: It is recommended that all thesis defenses are held online from May 17th to June 11th. No prior permission application is required. If the thesis defense must be conducted in-person in a room, the social distancing rule of 1.5 meters must be applied, and masks must be worn at all times.
4. Application for transfer: No need to obtain the signatures from the academic mentor and the department head during the period from May 17th to June 11th. Email all relevant documents (including the email records demonstrating the approvals from the academic mentor and the department head) to the Office of Registration for processing. The details will be announced on the website of the Office of Registration by May 18th.
