For Students in Other Faculties

In the faculty of Policy Management and the faculty of Environment and Information Studies, some courses restrict the number of students in a class. Students of SFC apply for screening on SFC-SFS (a kind of lesson support system), however, you cannot log into SFC-SFS and apply for screening because you don’t have a network account. You can apply it at Shonan Fujisawa ITC, but if you have it, you cannot log into SFC-SFS after the course registration period.

So, if you desire to register courses which restrict the number of students, please confirm the screening information in the syllabi (you can view in the campus-wide network) in advance and contact the faculty member in the syllabi.
