To all students
As per the announcement, "Information about AY 2022 Classes" dated December 24, 2021, the university as a whole will conduct more than 90% of its classes in person throughout the 2022 academic year while also continuing to take every necessary precaution against the spread of infections.
In order for students to be able to enjoy their campus experience with peace of mind, Keio University completed renovations to its ventilation systems in classrooms across all Keio campuses as well as other facility improvements during the 2021 academic year. Keio also plans to create new class formats that will integrate face-to-face and online elements based on knowledge and experience gained over the past two years, improving our students' overall education and learning experience. Please check the syllabus for details about individual classes.
In addition to this, we plan to implement the course numbering system "K-Number" in the 2022 academic year to allow students to create systematic study plans based on the requirements of their academic programs. All courses will be numbered to indicate their level, field of study, and class format, etc., and can be searched by "K-Number" using the syllabus search system.
Based on a new edition of "Standards for Establishment of Universities" released by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), students must be aware that Keio has amended its University Regulations so that students enrolled in undergraduate faculties (Bachelor's programs) may not count more than 60 credits from online classes towards graduation on their transcripts. To confirm whether a class is being held online or in person, students will be able to use the syllabus or "K-Number" system. Please be aware of class formats when creating your academic plan.
Please note that Keio University will institute special measures to ensure that students can continue their studies even if they are unable to attend classes in person at the beginning of the semester due to the pandemic situation in Japan or immigration restrictions We will be posting details on keio.jp news, so please check there for future updates.
Also, from March 22, in advance of the start of Spring Semester classes, Keio University will be administering a COVID-19 booster vaccination (3rd inoculation) program on Mita Campus. This is to ensure that students are able to take classes with utmost peace of mind moving into the new semester, that those who wish to get vaccinated are able to do so at their earliest convenience, and that the overall spread of infection might be mitigated moving forward.
As the ongoing nature of COVID-19 makes it difficult to tell what type of threats it might pose, we ask that students remain vigilant against infections so that everyone can fully enjoy their time on campus.
