明 治 大 学


 日本国内における新型コロナウイルス感染症の影響拡大に鑑み、学生の皆様の健康と安全の確保を優先して、2020年度春学期の授業開始日を5月7日(木)に繰り下げることをご案内しておりましたが、この間、本学が所在する東京都、神奈川県に緊急事態宣言が発令され、本学も入構制限措置を講じるなど、学生が通学しての対面授業の実施は同日においても困難であると判断しました。このことに伴い、授業開始日である5月7日(木)から原則として、 6月17日(水)(S1期間)までを、当面の間オンライン形式により実施することを決定しました。
 なお、6月18日(木)(S2期間)以降の授業実施形態については、 5月末日を目安に改めてお知らせします。

オンライン授業実施に伴い、学生の皆様には、インターネット環境の整備など、授業開始までに準備いただくものがあります。オンライン授業に関することにつきましては、 Oh-o!Meijiシステム上に詳しい説明を用意しましたので、必ず授業開始前に確認し、早めに学習の準備を始めてください。

To Students of Meiji University (incoming and current) and others concerned;

[Important Notice]
Regarding the Postponement of “Face-to-Face Classes” in the Spring Semester for 2020 and the Implementation of Online Classes

In view of the spread of the COVID-19 infection in Japan, we at Meiji University informed all concerned of the postponement of the start of classes for the Spring Semester, 2020 to May 7 in order to ensure the health and safety of our students and all others concerned. Recently, however, a state of emergency was declared for the Tokyo and Kanagawa Prefectures, where our university campuses are located, and we have taken measures to restrict the entry of students to our campus facilities.

Under these circumstances, the university decided that it would be inadvisable for our students to attend the campuses or for us to conduct normal face-to-face classes.

In line with this, the university has duly decided that, in principle, ONLY ONLINE CLASSES WILL BE CONDUCTED from May 7 through to June 17. This term is defined as S1 in the 2020 Academic Calendar.

Exceptionally, some classes may be regarded as inappropriate to conduct in online, such as lab classes. For such classes there may be some variation in the implementation of the period.

We will make an announcement by the end of May regarding the method of conducting classes beyond June 18 (S2 term).

All students are kindly requested to check the detailed explanation posted the Oh-o! Meiji System (The learning management system) prior to the start of class. All students need to prepare for taking online classes, including such matters as the internet connection environment, etc.
The URL of Oh-o! Meiji System is as follows: https://oh-o2.meiji.ac.jp/

The university understands that it would be better for our students and faculty members to meet and directly interact together in the classroom as normal. However, our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of our students and all others concerned.

Meiji University will earnestly continue to search for a way to provide quality education to our students so that they are able to study with peace of mind. Your understanding is highly appreciated.
