In fall semester 2021, as there are only a limited number of students, faculty, and staff received their first shot of vaccine or being fully vaccinated, NKUST will start remote education from Sep 13 to 26 and resume in-person classroom instruction on Sep 27


NKUST has enhanced health and safety measures to protect our students, faculty, and staff to reduce the spread of Covid-19 on campus. Faculty, staff, or students must follow these requirements. They include:
