Student Financial Services
The Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) assists Berklee students and families in managing the cost of a quality education through a wide variety of sources and aid programs. We have aid programs that help cover the costs our undergraduate, graduate, summer, and online academic programs. These sources include federal, state, and institutional aid programs as well as educational loan opportunities. Our largest population of students, by far, is the undergraduate population at the Boston campus, where we administer all federal aid, scholarships, grants, and loans for these students. In addition, we manage an extensive student employment program for undergraduate students that helps provide them with opportunities to work part-time on campus in order to assist with their education expenses. All federal aid that is awarded to our Berklee Online undergraduate students is also managed through SFS. We also administer all federal graduate aid for both our Boston and Valencia campuses. Finally, we are responsible for managing our summer program scholarships for students at our Boston campus.
The Office of Summer Programs is responsible for managing the short-program initiatives, for 11- to 18-year-olds, that take place during the summer semester. With a view to supporting the goals of the Comprehensive Enrollment Strategy around undergraduate recruitment, Summer Programs receives around 3,000 students to about 20 programs, the flagship program being the Five-Week Summer Performance Program, which enrolls more than 1,000 students each summer.
Berklee’s first international campus, located in Valencia, Spain, offers a unique curriculum and an unparalleled faculty of inspiring educators and cutting-edge industry professionals. The Valencia campus currently offers master's degree programs, study abroad opportunities, and summer programs as well as a new way for musicians around the world to join the global music community—as performers, as practitioners, and as leaders.
