Voluntary avoidance of part-time jobs and extension of tuition fee payments for students with financial difficulties

2020.04.27


The Japanese government has declared a state of emergency in all prefectures in response to the spread of COVID-19. On April 21, the Governor of Niigata called for all universities to temporarily close. In accordance with this request, NUT will be closed from April 23 to May 6.

NUT students, who are unable to come to campus, should participate in online classes through Zoom and avoid going out for nonessential purposes. Therefore, I believe that our students are spending most of their time at home. However, I know that there are many students who have part-time jobs for work experience or living expenses. The government’s requests for the voluntary closure of businesses to control the spread of infection applies to many types of industries and companies (including juku schools and restaurants). It is therefore extremely difficult to continue part-time work.

The spread of COVID-19 has reduced the income of many people, including those paying tuition fees (such as parents) and the part-time income of students. Therefore, NUT has implemented a special measure to extend the tuition fee payment deadline for students who have difficulties in paying the first semester’s fees. The deadline will be extended from September 15, 2020 to March 15, 2021.

NUT students are strongly requested to refrain from working at part-time jobs, which have the “Three Cs” (Closed spaces, Crowded places, and Close contact) that increase the risk of spreading infections. Please place your own health and the health of the people around you as the top priority.

With regard to the application for the extension of tuition fee payments, we will update the website when the details are decided. We will do our best to ensure that you can all safely continue your studies at NUT.
