Prospective Students/Parents

Transitioning from high school to college can be a challenging time for any student. Students with disabilities, and their parents, may find these challenges to be magnified.

Being as prepared as you can—for both students and parents—is essential to a smooth transition to Berklee. There are many differences between the accommodation procedures in high school and in postsecondary education. Among these are documentation requirements, the shift to self-identification and self-advocacy, and the specific rights and responsibilities of the student and of the college.

We understand that you may feel uncertain, and have compiled the following information to assist you. Please do not hesitate to contact disability services staff if you have further questions or concerns.
