为加强新型冠状病毒感染的肺炎疫情防控工作，按照教育部和上海市的统一部署，也为了您的安全与健康考虑，上海交通大学已研究决定推迟 2020 年春季学期开学时间，并要求全体同学不要提前来校。
In order to strengthen the prevention and control of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus and to ensure your health and safety, according to the unified deployment of the Ministry of Education and Shanghai, Shanghai Jiao Tong University has decided to postpone the start of the spring semester of 2020. All students are required not to arrive at school in advance.
As the world-wide pandemic of novel-coronavirus pneumonia has not yet come to an end, to facilitate your Chinese study, we have made the decision to switch the entire Chinese language program to online live-broadcasting teaching. We hope you will choose to stay with SJTU as the institution of learning. If you choose to study online, Please stay at home and follow our online instruction. Students who are not currently in China are not expected to come to China for online study. In order to guarantee an orderly and smooth start of the new instructional system, we need your co-operation to make a choice and deal with corresponding procedures to that choice.
You can take the 13-week online live-broadcasting courses（2020.03.30-2021.06.26）in spring semester which has 3 class hours a day from 16:00 (Beijing time) (Note that this is different from the MOOC materials provided to you previously, as the latter is free of charge). The tuition is ￥6000, and if you have paid ￥9900 before，please email email@example.com before March 30th to know how to get the rest part of tuition which is ￥3900 in total. And there are two options and you must choose one of them:
(1) The rest fee can be reserved for the summer Chinese tuition or the fall semester tuition. (The related policies will be sent to you by email.)
(2) You can ask for getting refund ￥3900.
2.如果本学期不参加在线直播课程，且秋季有继续学习的意向，可以将本学期学费保留至下学期使用（2020.9 - 2021.01）。届时需要在网上重新报名（报名时间：2020.05.01 - 2020.06.15）。报名时无需再次缴纳报名费，请将春季学期的录取通知书作为付款凭证上传即可。
According to the relevant visa regulation in China, if the purpose of staying in China is not related to study, you cannot stay with a student visa. Therefore, if you do not join the online course, and want to continue studying in Autumn semester, you can reserve the tuition fee for this semester as the tuition fee for the next semester (2020.9-2021.01). You need to do is reapplying online again. (online registration period: 2020.05.01-2020.06.15).
