The Office of the Registrar and Associate Dean coordinates registration and courses for the Master of Divinity, Master of Arts, and the Master of Arts in Theological Studies. Information is available in the Office of the Registrar for requirements for both SFTS and GTU programs.

Student Web Advisor
Current students may check their grade records, their registration, and the status of their accounts on the Student Web Advisor section of the GTU website. Go to, click on Students, Online Tools, Student WebAdvisor, and choose the SFTS WebAdvisor to log in using the user name and PIN provided by the Registrar.

General registration takes place during the week before the beginning of the fall and spring semesters; early registration for fall semester occurs the preceding April, for the January intersession in early December, and for spring semester in the preceding October. Continuing students are expected to register for the next term during early registration, leaving general registration for making adjustments in the study program and for new students to register.

To register on-line through the GTU's WebAdvisor you must have a UserID and PIN number available from your registrar. Unclassified (non-degree) students should register in person with the registrar

Steps for registration:

  1. To choose courses, consult the SFTS course lists and the GTU course schedule (which includes SFTS offerings as well as those of the other GTU schools). The most up-to-date version can be found on the web at click Academics, then Course Schedule. Talk to your advisor and the Registrar to make sure you are fulfilling requirements.

  2. For courses with enrollment restrictions (limits on enrollment, faculty permission required) contact the instructors of the classes by email; indicate who you are, your degree program, year in the program, your preparation for the class and why you wish to take the course. Send your request by the end of the first week of early registration or by the end of the week before general registration for any semester. Instructors will inform the students admitted to the limited class by email (by the beginning of the second week of early registration), providing a PIN to enable you to register for the class.

  3. Log in to WebAdvisor: Go to, click on Students, Student WebAdvisor, then SFTS WebAdvisor. Click on Students and log in your User ID and PIN. Detailed instructions for the next steps can be found in the Student Handbook elsewhere on this site.

  4. Changes to your registration: Adjustments and corrections to your registration may be made through without penalty until the end of the late registration period, usually the end of the second week of class in any given term.. After that deadline, the registrar will make changes in your enrollment after you obtain the instructor's signature on a change form and pay a $50 fee. No changes are allowed after the 10th week of class.

Official transcripts are issued by the Office of the Registrar in San Anselmo and may be sent to the student or to other designated individuals or institutions. Permission to release transcripts must be given in writing. SFTS cannot provide official copies of transcripts from other institutions. Students who wish their grades to be sent routinely to the Committees on Preparation for Ministry may request this service by filing a release form with the Registrar.

The first transcript after graduation or withdrawal from Seminary is provided free of charge; subsequent copies cost $5 each. No transcript will be issued for any student whose financial accounts with the Seminary are not clear.
