Immunization Requirements

The Massachusetts code of regulations requires that all students enrolled at Berklee College of Music’s campus in Boston provide documentation that they have been immunized against the following before attending class:

  • measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR);
  • tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap);
  • varicella;
  • hepatitis B; and
  • meningococcal disease (for students living in the on-campus residence halls).

Immunization (Vaccine) Information for Entering and Transfer Students

  • For students entering in the fall 2017 semester, we strongly recommend sending in the immunization form by August 1, 2017.

All students must submit a completed immunization form to Admissions in order to finalize their application procedure. Students should make sure they have received the required shots; it takes only one missing or expired shot to cause delays during check-in.  Links to immunizations forms may be found below:

Immunization forms may be sent to:

Berklee College of Music
Office of Admissions
1140 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02215-3693, U.S.A.
Fax: 617-747-2047


We understand that due to the multiple doses required, students may not have fulfilled all immunizations requirements by August 1. Students should submit documentation of what immunizations have been completed by August 1. As students continue to complete their immunization requirements, they should submit their updated documents to Admissions for a more efficient check-in process.

If students have submitted their documentation but are still receiving communications indicating otherwise, students should contact Admissions immediately at 800-BERKLEE (237-5533), 617-747-2222, or
