Back to Berklee text treatment Spring 2021 Registration: Only continuing and returning students will register for classes. If you are entering in the spring, you will be registered for courses by the Office of the Registrar the week before classes begin.

The spring 2021 semester will be a combination of on-campus and remote study; therefore, many of the policies in the registration guide do not apply for this semester. Please view the Spring Back to Berklee registration page for information specific to spring 2021.

It will be easier and take less time to register for spring 2021 if you research the courses you want to take before your assigned online registration time. This will also give you extra time to seek any advising you require, request waivers, or perform any other necessary registration-related activities.

You can do this by either viewing Course Descriptions by subject or by using the Course Search tool to search by course code or title. Read the course descriptions to ensure that you have the proper prerequisites, corequisites, and ensemble ratings, and that each course is electable by you, as you will not be able to register for courses that have requirements you do not meet.

  • To satisfy course prerequisites, you must have a passing grade, transfer credit, or Credit by Exam (CBX) on record. 
  • Courses in which you are currently enrolled can be used as prerequisites. However, if you do not receive a passing grade for any fall 2020 course that is being used as a prerequisite for a spring 2021 course, you will be removed from that course before the start of that term.
  • Secure any necessary prerequisite waivers from department chairs by contacting chairs via email to request a waiver prior to registering for classes. If a waiver is granted, it will be entered onto your record electronically, and then you will be able to add the class to your schedule.
