Due to the global pandemic many German embassies across the globe aren't fully functioning as they had to shut down and then slow down their processing power, such an issue is undeniably out of students hands. This means many students are unable to reach on campus before the 26th October deadline. Therefore, deferment and its consequences are unnecessary stress on students that already dealing with other situations such as changing education systems by entering university, the possibility of a second of wave of virus among others. And given many are already enrolled in the online classes it'll be a waste of time to defer mid semester and start in spring semester.

Hence, we are requesting Jacobs to extend the deadline or make the entire first semester online as classes are already ongoing. Many of Jacob's capable professors have demonstrated that they are ready to teach online and offline simultaneously, some have even started.

This will allow students who have invested time and energy into this semester to continue and graduate with the class of 2023. Instead of starting from scratch in the next semester. 

Possible solutions:

Labs can be taken during intersessions or in the following semesters as extra credit hours.

Exams can be done online or during the retake session.
