Class Implementation Policy for Spring Semester 2021
For the AY2021 Spring Semester, while continuing to take measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the University is making preparations to conduct classes mainly in-person with some online. We are aiming to conduct more than 50% of the classes in-person when the level of the Soka University Activity Restriction Policy is lowered to 1.5. Depending on the subject and the number of students enrolled, hybrid (HyFlex) classes that combine both in-person and online learning styles will be offered.
In addition, depending on the further situation of COVID-19, the above policy may need to be revised both before the semester begins, and in the middle of the semester, plus the ratio of in-person and online classes may also change. We ask each student to check the notifications and lecture announcements on the student portal site PLAS from time to time.
The list of in-person and online classes when the level of Soka University Activity Restriction Policy is 1.5 or lower will be announced on the student portal site PLAS, so please check the website regularly.
AY2021 Spring Semester classes will be conducted on the premise that students are to participate on campus. However, those with unavoidable reasons such as living overseas and unable to enter Japan, or having underlying medical conditions, etc. are allowed to take classes online by application. Please apply to take the classes online. Information on how to apply for permission to take classes online will be posted on the student portal site PLAS at a later date.
For in-person classes, we will avoid the “3 C’s (Closed Spaces, Crowded Places, and Close-Contact Settings),” limit the number of people in the classrooms and use antiviral measures on the tables in all classrooms to prevent the spread of infection.
We ask for the continued cooperation of all students to follow the “Soka University Guidelines for the Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreaks” to prevent any spread of COVID-19.
We will continue to take appropriate measures in response to the situation. We ask for your understanding and cooperation.
