Registering for Courses

When to Register

Registration occurs online at my.berklee.edu. You will be assigned an "appointment time" which will be the earliest date and time you can register for courses for summer/fall 2014. Registration appointment times are assigned to students by descending order of semester levels (highest to lowest) and within a semester level by the number of credits earned, and are scheduled for a time of day during the registration period when you are not in class.

You can find your registration appointment time on your "Registration and Check-in Profile" screen, under the Registration submenu on my.berklee.edu. For the summer and fall 2014 semesters, you can register on that date and time, or any time after that, through April 18, 2014. 

You've done your planning, know which courses you'd like to take, and your appointment time is here. You are now ready to register for your courses online.

Registering for Private Instruction and/or Recital Preparation

Register for your PI and/or RP before your other courses using "Search and Register for Classes". See Private Instructors and Private Instruction and Recital Preparation and Requirements for requirements, course codes, and available instructors.

Registering for Ensembles

Students are limited to registering for a specific number of ensembles during the registration period according to instrument. This is to provide all students with a fair opportunity to register for ensembles. Once all students’ registration appointment times have passed, additional ensembles can be added. See Ensemble Information for more information. 

To view a current online listing of ensembles with open seats for your instrument, log in to my.berklee.edu, select the “Students” link, then click on the “Browse Ensembles” link under the Registration submenu. This report updates every five minutes, so make note of the ensembles with available seats and try to add them. 

Experiencing Technical Difficulties?

If you're running into technical problems when trying to register online, here are a few quick tips that may help solve them:

  • Do not use the "Back" button on your browser. Use the menu items and links provided.
  • Online Registration does not support multiple tabs. Though you may be able to run multiple tabs, it is not recommended that you do so when registering online.
  • The system may take up to 15 seconds to process your request, so be patient and do not click "Submit" more than once on each screen.
  • When faced with error messages, sometimes quitting and restarting the browser and/or your computer before logging back in can help. Cookies, caches and other settings on your specific machine may need updating. You can also try a different browser, or if you have access, a different machine.

If you need additional assistance, please visit the Student Computer Support Center on the lower level of 186 Massachusetts Avenue, email them at 8800@berklee.edu, or call them at (617) 747-8800. If you have problems registering due to academic issues, please visit the Office of the Registrar at Suite 120, Uchida, or contact them at 617-747-2240.
