Registration advice and instructions for Fall 2015 – coming soon

Before beginning, please take time to open and read the above links.  Information from the Academic Dean and the Director of Student Services will be helpful to you as you begin the registration process.  The registration advice link is a step by step guide for choosing your courses.

ES-500, Educated Spirit, is a required course for ALL new students.  This course begins with an intensive weekend that you must attend.  Please plan now to be on campus all day August 21 and 22, 2015.  Orientation is scheduled for part of the day on Friday, August 21, and Educated Spirit follows into the evening and all day Saturday, August 22.

In early May, new students may register without faculty advising. You may also schedule an appointment with the registrar to register in person.  If you prefer talking with a faculty advisor, please contact the registrar

You should list alternate courses in the event we are unable to meet your first request. Please mark them as “alternate.” If there are problems or concerns with your submitted schedule, the registrar will contact you. You will receive confirmation of your schedule by e-mail. In future terms, you will meet with your faculty advisor prior to registration.

During Orientation you may review your course schedule with a faculty advisor and discuss your plans for the rest of the school year. If you need to revise your schedule, you may drop or add courses at that time. You also will receive valuable information about life as a student at MTSO, have an opportunity to talk with professors about class expectations and learn “where to go for what” on campus. You will receive more details about Orientation soon.

Finally, the link to this page has been sent to the e-mail address we have on file for you. Once you begin classes, you will have a new e-mail address in the format “” You will need to transfer to this account for all your school-related e-mail communications. If you wish to configure this new account to forward messages to another account you already use, you may do so but will need to set up that process on your own. E-mail is an official channel for school communications; we require it and use it extensively at MTSO. Please remember to check your new e-mail account once you are enrolled.

Please contact Registrar Sue Lamphere by phone (740-362-3344) or e-mail if you have any questions. Many people are available to answer questions as you make this transition to seminary. We are looking forward to having you on campus.
