NTNU COVID-19 Pandemic Guidelines for Academic Affairs

1.This guideline is based on the “Guidelines for School In-Person Class Suspension Due to COVID-19 Pandemic” (https://covid19.ntnu.edu.tw/news_detailV2.php?newsid=216) announced by the Ministry of Education.

2.To switch to online instruction, instructors should follow the guidelines below:

(1) For final exams, we would encourage all courses to switch to online formats. For support on online testing and assessment, please refer to the guidelines provided by NTNU CTLD(Center for Teaching and Learning Development).

(2) For laboratory works, internships, and practicums that cannot be conducted online, course assistants should make the necessary arrangements for students to use the laboratory or other spaces. Masks should be worn and social distancing maintained at all times during such courses.

(3) Off-campus internship courses should follow “Guidelines for the Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia Epidemic Prevention in the 110 Academic Year of Colleges and Universities”

(4) During the two weeks of online instruction, faculty may make use of university classrooms for course video recording or synchronous online instruction purposes.

3.Applications for suspension of studies, and declaration of minor or double major that need to be submitted in person or require the signature of instructors, advisors, thesis/dissertation advisors or department chairs, will be eligible for discretionary processing. Students may email the completed application form to their professors and university offices, and forward confirmation replies from these individuals or offices to the Office of Academic Affairs in lieu of their respective signatures. Please note that all applications must still abide by their respective deadlines.

4.Master’s and doctoral degree examination may be conducted via video conferencing. However, this must receive approval from their respective departmental meetings in accordance with “NTNU Degree Conferral and Graduate Degree Exam Regulations”, and the exam must be recorded in its entirety.

5.The deadline for thesis/dissertation submission and obtaining diploma is August 31st, 2022 for the Spring Semester of the 110th Academic Year. Please visit “Graduation” in the Office of Academic Affairs website for more information.

6.Faculty members in need of any technical or software related support for their online instruction are advised to contact NTNU Campus Online (https://www.co.ntnu.edu.tw/index.php/en/homepage-english/).

7.These guidelines will be modified as CDC or the Ministry of Education make any new changes. Please follow our latest announcements in NTNU Bulletin and Office of Academic Affairs website closely for any new updates.
