On this page you can find the tools to register for classes at other BTI Consortium member schools.

Cross-registration is only open to students currently enrolled in a BTI Consortium member school. The best news is that it is completely free!

If you are looking for the BTI Consortium course catalog, click on the "Course Catalog" button below (note dates for uploading the next semester's approved courses). Only the listed, approved BTI courses are available for cross-registration. 

Once you have selected a course, you are ready to begin the registration process. Click here for a step-by-step instruction guide! 

**Sign up for the BTI Consortium Newsletter HERE to have BTI events and cross-registration news sent directly to your inbox!**


If you are a NEW BTI STUDENT you must fill out the New Student Registration Form to gain access to the BTI Consortium Portal. Click here to go to the New Student Registration Form. (It is also listed under the "Resources" tab)

Once you have submitted the New Student form, your information and eligibility is confirmed by your home registrar and a BTI Consortium Portal account is created for you automatically.

You will receive your username and password via email immediately. *Note: you MUST use your .edu address to register as a BTI Consortium student, and you only have to register to be a BTI Consortium student once - if you have forgotten your log in, contact us!

Once your request for cross-registration has been approved by your school's registrar, you will receive a second email notifying you that you are eligible to cross register through our portal. 


Students who have used the BTI Consortium Portal before can go straight to the portal and submit the cross-registration form using the desired course number. BTI Consortium Portal credentials can be re-used every semester.

Each year, we aim to post the next semester's course guide by mid-May (for Fall registration) and mid-November (for Spring registration). It will be posted here both in PDF with full course descriptions (blue button) and in a searchable Excel format. Only the listed, approved BTI courses are available for cross-registration.

As of June 30, 2020 the following schools have cross-registration courses available:

  • Boston College Department of Theology,
  • Boston College School of Theology and Ministry,
  • Boston University Graduate Program in Religion,
  • Boston University School of Theology,
  • Hartford Seminary,
  • Hellenic College and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School Of Theology, and
  • Saint John's Seminary

Approved courses will be added from remaining member schools when they are submitted, we hope no later than mid-July 2020. We will send a newsletter announcement when the catalog is complete.

A Note regarding HDS Registration and "Shopping Period": While you can register for an HDS course as soon as they are listed, and get approval through your HOME registrar, HDS will nto be processing any enrollments until August. Generally, HDS processes BTI cross-registrations the week before classes begin. Enrollment in an HDS course is not final until you receive confirmation from the HDS registrar (and instructor approval as listed in the course guide - which if required you should ask for immediately via email with the professor). Nothing can change or rush this process, please not it and proceed with patience.
