Office of the Registrar

Function

Registrars are custodians of students' records. Our office helps register students, record grades, prepare student transcripts, evaluate academic records, plan and implement commencement, and oversee the preparation of college catalogs and schedules of classes.

Student Registration

LSTC students register for courses through MyLSTC. Course information, including class dates/times, course profiles, course instructors and more can be found on our Courses and Calendars page. Further information is available in the Academic Catalog.

Follow the LSTC Academic Calendar to further understand registration timelines.

Transcripts

Transcript requests must be in writing. A $5.00 per copy fee is due with each request. The first copy ever requested is free. Copies to synods/scholarships are also free. Transcripts will not be issued to current or former students who owe an outstanding balance to the seminary.
