General Registration Information


New Students

The Registrar’s Office will register all new students who have been admitted into the Master of Divinity, Master of Arts-Deaconess, Master of Arts in Deaconess Studies or Alternate Route programs. Master of Arts, Master of Sacred Theology, Doctor of Ministry and Doctor of Philosophy students can register once they have been admitted into their specific degree program.

Returning Students

All returning students will register for the upcoming academic year either by the end of April or the first week of May through the Student Portal. Notification that registration information for the upcoming academic year is available will be publicized in the Blue News mid to late March. Vicars will be notified by e-mail that registration information is available.

Special Students

Special students can register once the Registrar’s Office has received their application, application fee and official transcripts.

CTS Student Portal

Students will access their class schedules, grade reports, billing statements, etc. via a Student Portal which is located on the seminary website.  The portal link will appear under the academics menu. Every student will have their own User ID and Password to enter the portal and this information is provided to students by the Registrar.  

Students will also be able to register for classes and see how they are progressing through their program by reviewing the Degree Audit area.  The audit will indicate clearly what requirements students have completed, what is in progress and what may be left to complete. Master of Divinity and Alternate Route students will see that the pre-seminary courses and hours have been added to the total number of credits needed to complete their programs.   

If students have questions about the Student Portal or any other issues, please contact the Registrar.
