On the Change of Date for the Conferment Ceremony AY2020 and the First Day of Classes

 

 

In lieu of the increasing number of COVID-19 infections in Japan and the persons confirmed to be infected in Ishikawa Prefecture, Kanazawa University has decided to not hold the Ceremony that was planned on April 3, 2020 at Ishikawa Sports Center. This is also in accordance with the “Basic Policies for Novel Coronavirus Disease Control” (February 25, Headquarters for Novel Coronavirus Disease Control).

In relation to this, the university is considering to push back the schedule for the first day of classes in AY2020. The details of the first day of classes and other schedule will be posted on the university website after 4:00 pm, March 20. Please be sure to check this information.

Also, there is consideration on whether the Entrance Ceremony will take place and in what capacity, in accordance with the change of the first day of classes. This will also be announced on the university website, so please check this information, too.

Depending on how the situation surrounding the infection develops, there is possibility that the first day of classes will change again. Please be sure to check the university website regularly.
