Immunization Requirements

The Massachusetts code of regulations requires that all students enrolled at Berklee’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 (all newly enrolled full-time students 21 years of age and younger must have received a dose of quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine (MenACWY) on or after their 16th birthday).

Immunization (Vaccine) Information for Entering and Transfer Students

  • For students entering in the summer 2019 semester, the due date to submit your immunization requirements is April 1, 2019. For students entering in the fall 2019 semester, the due date to submit your immunization requirements is August 1, 2019.

All entering students must submit a completed entering student immunization form to Magnus Health, Berklee's provider for collecting, managing, and tracking immunization information. Students should make sure they have received the required vaccines; it takes only one missing or expired dose to cause delays during check-in. Please note that you cannot attend Berklee College of Music or Boston Conservatory at Berklee until the immunization requirements are met.

You may retrieve an Entering Student Immunization Form and submit your immunization documentation online at https://secure.magnushealthportal.com/.


Immunization (Vaccine) Information for Returning Students

Students returning to Berklee College of Music or Boston Conservatory at Berklee that entered in the spring of 2019 or earlier do not have an account with Magnus Health.
