The school planned to enforce compulsory makeup lessons by setting a new schedule for professors and students. The new schedule was to make up cancelled lessons because of holidays such as Chuseok, Korean Thanksgiving Day, the National foundation Day, and Hangul Proclamation Day by replacing Sept. 8, 9, 10, Oct. 3 and 9 with Dec. 10, 11, 12, 15 and 16 respectively. However, due to increasing complaints from professors and students, OFAA decided to remove the plan. According to a statement released by OFAA, they had to reconsider enforcing supplementary lectures due to the confusion of students and professors.
“There were some complaints from professors and students right after the notification at the beginning of the semester,” said an official from OFAA. “We thought of possible amendment pending on the situation.”
As the designated dates of supplementary lectures came close, OFAA could not disregard the complaints. The office decided to remove the plan, having the new schedule set by OFAA ahead by a month. Students are showing mixed reaction toward the removal.
“More than half of the classes I go to have already adjusted the dates of final exam and supplementary lectures following the designated dates of OFAA,” Kim Hye-won (Television & Film, 2) said. “Removing the plan will worsen the problem as most of the professors and students have to readjust their schedule.”
On the other hand, some students welcome the change.
“I think it is the best way to cease complaints from professors and students,” Nam Jeong-min (Liberal Arts, 2) said. “Although it could have been better if the school predicted such disorder, it is the most suitable choice to take at the moment.”
