Visayas State University to start on-campus classes on March 21


BAYBAY CITY — Two years after the suspension of face-to-face classes, failed attempts to reopen due to the roller-coaster surge of the COVID-19 pandemic and the havoc caused by typhoon Odette in Eastern Visayas, the Visayas State University (VSU) will now officially start its on-campus classes. 

Beginning next week, March 21, 2022, an estimated 1,700 graduating students will be welcomed back inside the VSU main campus in Baybay City.

The first batch of returning students will have limited face-to-face classes for the remainder of the second semester of the academic year (AY) 2021-2022.

According to Dr. Ma. Rachel Kim L. Aure, Director for Instruction and Evaluation, it is really important that these 4th year students will be provided access to VSU’s laboratories and equipment as they are expected to conduct their respective theses that includes major laboratory works, plus the on-the-job training (OJT) that also requires hands-on and physical experiences.

A mandatory medical examination to be administered exclusively by the VSU Infirmary will also be implemented upon the arrival of these qualified students, according to the official newsletter of the Visayas State University.
Moreover, students must be fully vaccinated, have obtained basic medical insurance, and submit an affidavit of undertaking to allow entry to the campus. 

Meanwhile, lecture classes will continue to be taught in a flexible learning environment and will be delivered through the VSU E-Learning Environment in both asynchronous and synchronous modes.

VSU completed the requirements in accordance with the Commission on Higher Education’s basic guidelines and was validated by its regional office following a successful site inspection visit in December of last year.
