- If you are an entering undergraduate student, refer to the page for Accepted Students for Summer (May) Semester.

If you have been accepted to the First Year Abroad program at our campus in Valencia, Spain, please refer to the Accepted Undergraduate FYA Students page on the Berklee Valencia site for the information you will need to matriculate.
Once you are accepted to Berklee's Boston campus for the fall, there are a number of things that you need to do prior to check-in. This section of the site is designed to help you make a smooth transition.
International students will have to obtain an F-1 student visa prior to commencing their study in the U.S. Learn more about international visas.
Paying Your Tuition Deposit
Tuition deposits for Berklee College of Music are due upon acceptance notification. This initial deposit is credited towards your first semester charges. This deposit confirms your intention to attend the college and secures your seat in the entering class.
Make sure that your $1,000 deposit is paid in full no later than May 1.
Your acceptance is dependent on successful completion of any outstanding schoolwork. Admission acceptances are only valid for two consecutive semesters. Should your plans change, you must submit a written request to refund or transfer your tuition deposit to a later semester.
Admitted students to our full-time fall (September) undergraduate programs are eligible to defer their admission and associated scholarship to either the spring (January) or summer (May) semester.
Your refund or transfer request must be received by the college no later than May 1.
*Applicants who have credit transfer agreements with a Global Academic Partner are not considered deferrals, and they can matriculate to Berklee when they meet any applicable criteria.
Please note that if you are accepted to the First Year Abroad program, your acceptance to start on the Valencia campus is valid only for the semester that you were accepted. If you decide to defer your acceptance, your only option is to enroll on the Boston campus.
