IMPORTANT : CAMPUS REOPENING ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear APU Community,

The Minister of Higher Education announced on 4th September that the National Security (MKN) Council had agreed to allow campuses to reopen in October in stages as part of the National Recovery Plan (PPN).

Since then, the Ministry has held a series of engagement sessions with representatives of Public and Private Institutions in order to finalise the Standard Operating Procedures for the reopening of campuses. We have been informed that an official announcement will be issued soon. However, Teaching and Learning will be conducted in Hybrid mode (face to face and online) until further notice.

While we plan and prepare for the reopening of our campus, we have been advised to inform all students of the following:

ONLY FULLY VACCINATED STUDENTS, STAFF, WORKERS AND VISITORS WILL BE PERMITTED TO ENTER THE CAMPUS.

In line with guidelines issued by MKN for all premises nationwide, the definition of full vaccination is as follows:

a. For those who are on the two-dose vaccines (eg. Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Sinovac), full vaccination is considered achieved 14 days after receiving the second dose.

b. For those who are on the single-dose vaccines (eg. Johnson&Johnson, Cansino), full vaccination is considered achieved 28 days after receiving the dose.

For those vaccinated abroad, you need to update this information on MySejahtera. Please visit https://citf.mosti.gov.my/faq/en/docs/overseas-vaccination/how-do-individuals-who-have-completed-vaccinations-abroad-update-this-information-on-mysejahtera/ for more information.

(Your Vaccination Status is displayed in your Mysejahtera App – this is the only evidence of Full Vaccination that is recognised under MKN (National Security Council) guidelines and we will only refer to this to allow entry into the campus. NO EXCEPTIONS ARE ALLOWED BY MKN

WE ADVISE STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT YET ACHIEVED FULL VACCINATION STATUS TO ENSURE THAT YOU TAKE THE NECESSARY STEPS TO COMPLETE YOUR VACCINATION SOONEST POSSIBLE. THIS MEANS:

1. If you have not received your first dose, or have not received an appointment for your first dose, you should walk in to the nearest Vaccination Centre (PPV) with your Student ID Card/Virtual Student ID on the APSpace or your APU Admission Offer Letter. The Higher Education Ministry has made special arrangements with the Ministry of Health to facilitate all students. 

Special Note for those who are below 18 years of age:

(Note that the above is presently only available for students who are 18 years of age and above. The Ministry of Higher Education is working with MKN to make arrangements from those who are below 18, so please stand by for further announcements in this regard)

2. If you have received your first dose, please ensure that you do not miss your appointment for your second dose. Please contact the JKJAV HelpDesk via the MySejahtera App or from https://vaksincovid.gov.my if you have not received your appointment for your second dose or for any other related issues.

We are excited to be able to welcome the APU community back to campus and all measures have and will continue to be taken to ensure that the campus remains safe for everyone.

We will announce further details on the phases of our reopening plan as soon as possible after the official announcement and detailed SOPs are issued by the Ministry of Higher Education. Meanwhile, should you require any further information, you may contact us at covid-response@apu.edu.my

Stay Safe & Stay Healthy.
