Please note: The registration procedures on this page are primarily for special students who are NOT enrolled in a degree program at Starr King or other Graduate Theological Union (GTU) school. These registration instructions apply to residential, immersion, intensive, and online courses.
Students enrolled in a degree program at Starr King School (or any other GTU school) should follow the registration processes outlined by their school’s registrar. Starr King’s registration procedures are explained in the 2020-2021 Student Handbook.
Starr King registration periods are consistent with the Graduate Theological Union registration periods. See the academic calendar for important dates.
Early registration is strongly recommended as many classes have limited enrollment and fill during early registration period.
