Cross-Registration for Seminary Students

Students enrolled in a degree program at one of the member schools are eligible to take courses at one of the other seminaries at the same tuition rate and with automatic credit transfer to the student’s school. Students are registered on a space-available basis, with priority going to students of the school at which the course is scheduled. Students registering under the consortium agreement pay tuition through the student’s home school. Residential courses scheduled in the fall-summer terms are available under this program, subject to policy of the offering school. Online courses are excluded. Students can use the Universal Registration Form 062014 to register for courses at another seminary in the Consortium.

The following links will take you to course information at each of the seminaries.

The five theological libraries of the consortium seminaries comprise the Minnesota Theological Library Association (MTLA). The libraries hold about 775,000 volumes representing about 350,000 unique titles. These holdings constitute the most significant resource in religious studies between Chicago and the West Coast. In addition, each of the MTLA libraries provides many other electronic resources, both online and on site, tailored to their constituencies. Contact the libraries for information. View the MTLA site for information and links to each of the libraries.
