(*Should the instructor determine that remote classes will not provide sufficient educational effect, the course will not be offered remotely.)

2) Once a request has been granted, the instructor will inform you of the date and time to start remote classes. However, depending on when you submit your request, you may not be able to attend first few classes remotely.

3) The university will conduct final examinations in person for all students, including those who attended courses remotely, in order to ensure impartiality in the examination environment and to prevent academic dishonesty. Please follow the instructions of your instructors regarding final examinations.
