Boston College is requiring all students, faculty, and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before participating in any on-campus activity related to the 2021–2022 academic year. Any student enrolling in a BC course will be required to upload their vaccination card before the start of the semester.
Boston College Students
Undergraduate and graduate students may be eligible to take courses in BC-affiliated consortia if the same courses are not offered at Boston College at any time during the academic year.
Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium (BTI)
The Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium (BTI), a consortium of theology faculty primarily in the Boston-Newton-Cambridge area, has as its constituent members the following institutions:
- Boston College Theology Department
- Boston College School of Theology and Ministry
- Boston University School of Theology
- Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
- Hartford Seminary
- Harvard Divinity School
- Hebrew College
- Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
- St. John’s Seminary and Theological Institute
This consortium offers complete cross-registration in several hundred courses, the use of library facilities in the nine schools, joint seminars and programs, and faculty exchange programs.
Theology majors and students in the School of Theology and Ministry who want to cross register through the Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium should visit the Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium website to create an account and submit a cross registration request. Students are expected to consult with their advisor or department chairperson before cross registering. Graduate Theology majors may take up to half of their courses through BTI.
Under a program of cross registration, sophomores, juniors, and seniors may take one elective course during each fall and spring semester at Boston University, Brandeis University, Northeastern University, Pine Manor College, Regis College, or Tufts University if a similar course is not available at Boston College. Please visit the Academic Forms page to access an editable version of the cross registration form.
Graduate students, except law students, may cross register for one course each fall and spring semester at Boston University, Brandeis University, or Tufts University. M.B.A. students are not permitted to register at Brandeis University and students in the CSOM's Graduate Finance Program are not allowed to cross register at any of the universities. Please visit the Academic Forms page to access an editable version of the cross registration form.
Law school students may cross register for classes only at Boston University Law School and only if the course they wish to take at BU will not be offered at any time during the current academic year. Students wishing to cross register must see the Registrar for permission.
Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality
Graduate students enrolled in degree programs during the academic year may apply to participate in the Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality, an inter-institutional enterprise established to advance the field of women's studies and enlarge the scope of graduate education through new models of team teaching and interdisciplinary study. Faculty and students are drawn from six member schools—Boston College, Brandeis, Harvard, Northeastern, MIT, and Tufts. Graduate students enrolled in degree programs at Boston College may, with the permission of their department, apply to participate in this program. Registration forms will be mailed from the Consortium to accepted students.
For more information, visit the Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality website.
Non-Boston College Students
Students who are interested in cross registering for a course at BC should obtain a cross registration form from their home Registrar's Office. The form must be signed by the home advisor, registrar, and BC course instructor. Once those signatures are obtained, submit the form to Christine Muller in BC Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for processing. Cross registration requests are not typically processed until the first day of class.
