Self-Service Registration Process & Dates

Registration through Self-Service always has at least two parts: Sign Up and Tuition Payment.  If you are taking 12 or more hours in a Fall or Spring term, you will also need to either demonstrate Proof of Insurance or purchase the seminary's plan.


You can sign up for classes through Self-Service several months before classes begin (see dates listed below for when registration opens on Self-Service for each term) and you can change your schedule as often as you like without a drop/add fee until the day before classes begin.  Once classes begin for the term, a drop/add fee will be charged to your account for each change you make to your schedule.  In order to sign up for classes you will need to login in to Self-Service with your RTS ID.


Although you can sign up for your classes when registration opens through Self-Service, you will not be charged for those classes until the week before the term begins.  When tuition is charged to your account, any financial aid that you have will also be assessed.  In order to complete registration you need to pay for your classes. Payment can be made through Self-Service with a credit card. However, RTS will still need to receive a church check for all church partnership scholarships. If you prefer to pay with cash or check you may send your payment to the Charlotte campus, attention: Tari Williamson.

During the Fall and Spring semesters, you will have a week after classes begin to complete payment.  During the Summer and Winter terms, you will have until the second day the class meets to complete payment.  If payment is not complete by these deadlines, your registration is not complete and you will be dropped from your classes.

All exceptions to paying in full, such as installment payments for full-time students, will need to be pre-approved by the Financial Aid Director (Stephane Jeanrenaud). Brief delays in the payment policy, due to church checks for example, may be reported to Tari ( A one percent finance charge is added to all balances at the end of each month. Students with a debt will be unable to register for upcoming classes.


During the Fall and Spring semesters, if you are enrolled in 12 or more hours, you will need to handle insurance during the same two-week window that you handle Tuition Payment.  Please meet with Angela Boyd in the administrative building in order to either demonstrate proof of insurance (it must be an active plan) or purchase the RTS Student Insurance.  If you do not handle insurance by these deadlines, your registration is not complete and you will be dropped from your classes.
