Academic Advising

Academic advising is a collaborative relationship between student and advisor that fosters the agency for success at Berklee and in life. Under the guidance of their academic advisor, students are empowered to realize their personal and educational potential.

By meeting with an advisor and discussing academic plans, students become more aware of the possibilities that are available to them as a Berklee student. Students can also come to their advisor to discuss academic struggles and come up with solutions that will aid in their success.

While academic advisors are able to address many academic topics with students, questions that are specific to a student's major should be directed to the major department. 

Advising Drop-Ins

Students can meet with an academic advisor during a brief drop-in session (typically about 10 minutes in length) to discuss quick topics relating to their academic status. An academic advisor is available on a first-come, first-served basis during our daily drop-in hours (login required).


Students can schedule a time with their academic advisor for a 30-minute appointment (in person or via phone) by visiting our appointment page (login required).

Beginning Friday, March 23, the Academic Advising Office will permanently relocate to the new Center for Student Advising and Success on the second floor of 939 Boylston Street (accessible via the third floor of 921 Boylston Street). Students can also reach us at 617-747-2386.
