Students enrolled at Hartford Seminary in degree programs have the unique opportunity to take classes through the Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium (BTI), a consortium of seminaries and theological schools in the Boston area. In addition to Hartford Seminary, schools in the consortium include:
- Boston College – Department of Theology

- Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
- Harvard Divinity School
- Hebrew College Rabbinical School

Hartford Seminary degree students may take selected courses at any of these member schools; not to exceed the transfer credit totals for their particular degree program. Cross registration is performed online through the BTI website. BTI courses must be completed within the time limits as stated for each course. BTI cross registration is not available during the summer.
- Meet with their Hartford Seminary advisor, complete a Consortium Cross-Registration Pre-Approval form, and submit the completed form to the Registrar’s Office.
- Once the cross-registration is approved, the student should proceed to the BTI Cross-Registration Portal to complete the registration process.
- First time users will first be required to create a portal account. Returning students may simply log in. You must use your .@student.hartsem.edu email address when registering or your application will be denied.
