Orientation week is full of informative and fun events and activities to help you learn about Berklee, get to know Boston, and meet other new Berklee students. You will receive the full schedule of orientation events and activities after you’ve attended the onboarding event when you arrive on campus. Here is what you can do to prepare for orientation: 

Before you arrive on campus, be sure to complete all necessary administrative requirements, including submission of your tuition payment, immunization records, high school transcripts, and health insurance documentation.

The following steps tell you how to check the status of your administrative requirements:

  1. Log in to using the OnePass ID and password sent to you by the Admissions team.
  2. Find the Campus Tools menu (the white squares next to the search bar), and select "My Berklee."
  3. Log in to MyBerklee, then select "Students" on the right.
  4. Select "Semester Check-in" from the "Check-in" menu.

Any outstanding check-in requirements will be listed there. You will not be able to check in, receive your laptop, or receive your course schedule until you have completed all of your administrative requirements. It is important to complete all of these requirements before you arrive.  

For more information on steps you must complete before check-in, visit the Accepted Students page.
