Catalog Year Policy

All students are assigned to a specific academic year catalog at matriculation. This catalog provides students with a complete set of academic requirements required to graduate which will not change despite any curricular changes that occur during your years of study.

Students may opt to change to a more recent catalog year assignment if they prefer to graduate under a newer set of curricular requirements. Students who leave and return to Berklee after four or more years will automatically be assigned to the new catalog year that is in effect at the time of their return. Students may not change their catalog year assignment to an earlier catalog. Students are encouraged, however, to meet with the chair of their major to discuss the applicability of past course work to their existing catalog assignment.
