Attention: All Students and Guarantors
Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections have continued to spread worldwide since January, and the situation has yet to return to normal. Three weeks have passed since we strengthened restrictions on students entering the university premises as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
For the first semester, we began online (remote) classes from April 22nd so students would not stop their studies.
At Tokyo Keizai University, our professors are focused on providing the same high-quality education of our in-person classes to an online platform, and have prepared through a series of trials and errors. While we are unable to hold classes on campus for the time being, all of our faculty and staff are working together to overcome this difficult situation so that all students can continue their studies. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
While we carry out classes online, we have taken all possible measures to maintain the campus facilities until face-to-face classes can be resumed on campus.
To conduct online classes, we have asked all students to prepare a computer and a stable internet connection. To help reduce this financial burden, we will give all currently-enrolled students a 50,000 yen scholarship to support their studies.
Information about the application process and the compensation period will be announced on the TKU portal and TKU website as soon as the system is implemented.
For students who purchase textbooks through the university co-op (Seikyo), the university will cover the cost of shipping. For more information, please check the announcement on the TKU portal site.
For students who want to borrow books or copy journal articles, please apply through the library portal site, “My Library” or via email. Materials will be sent to the student’s registered home address through mail for the time being (shipping cost to be covered by the University). Databases, e-journals and e-books can be accessed from your home. For details, please check the library website: https://www.tku.ac.jp/library/
A tuition fee exemption system is in place for students enrolled in school that have difficulties paying their tuition fee due to accidents, such as disasters, death, or illness of family income supporters, which has resulted in a sudden decrease in household income.
|Applicants||Students attending school who have difficulty paying tuition fees due to disasters, death, or illness of family income supporters|
|Amount||Depending on the household criteria and the reason for the sudden change, the tuition fee may be reduced by 100%, 50% or 25% ( determined by examination)|
|Reduction Period||One year (for the relevant year only)
Determined by the student committee examination
|Application Qualifications||Only applies for situations that occurred after enrollment. Repeater students are ineligible. Situations that occurred before admission are excluded.|
|Application Period||Within six months of the sudden change in household budget.
Until December 2020 for 4th year students.
※Inquiries can be made only in the “Scholarship” category of the “Questions/ Consultations” section of the TKU portal site.
We will give updates about various support measures such as online employment consultations and free English conversation with native English teachers, so please check the website for more information: https://www.tku.ac.jp/service_matome.html
In accordance with the state of emergency which was declared on April 7, 2020, the following items will be managed until the end of May.
Entrance restrictions at the Kokubunji and Musashimurayama Campus, except for faculty
Prohibition of student’s use of facilities
Suspension of all university window services
Implementation of telework for some faculty and staff
Change of telephone support hours (Weekdays 10:00～11:30, 13:00～15:00)
As the future situation changes, our current responses are subject to change. For guarantors, please check the university website for the latest information. We provide information for students regarding student life on the TKU portal site. Regarding classes, please check the information for each course on manaba.
Finally, it is of the utmost importance to not get infected by COVID-19, and to not become a source of infection. I hope that students will refrain from going out as much as possible, and when classes on campus become viable, that they will fully demonstrate the results of their individual studies. We look forward to the day when everyone can gather together on campus, but until then, please do your best to study hard at home as a responsible member of Tokyo Keizai University.
President, Tokyo Keizai University
