What is Boston like in the summer?
The college's concentrated musical environment is well balanced by the relaxed pace of summer in Boston. The city offers a special array of concerts and cultural events throughout the summer months, many of them free to the public and within walking distance of the college. The proximity of Boston to the Atlantic Ocean and the lakes and mountains of New England provides a variety of recreational opportunities on weekends.

Would you like to enroll as a full-time student?
After completing the Full-Credit Summer Program, you may decide that you want to continue your studies at Berklee as a full-time degree or diploma student. To be considered for acceptance, you will need to submit a full-time application and all of the required supporting documents by November 1. If you are accepted, the credits you've earned during the summer will be applied to your program and course schedule. Should you decide to study elsewhere, you may be able to transfer your Berklee credits to that institution (depending on its transfer credit policy).
