Semester Check-In Information

​What Is Check-In?

Check-in is the way you confirm your enrollment for the fall 2020 semester. To enroll for the fall semester, during the check-in period Berklee College of Music students must log in to and select the Semester Check-In link in the Check-In section. Before you can complete the check-in process, all restrictions must be cleared.

The check-in deadline for the fall semester is Friday, September 4 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

What Happens if You Don’t Check in by the Deadline

  • If you do not check in by the deadline, the college will assume you are not attending this semester and will cancel your schedule.

  • If you check in after the deadline, you will be charged a $250 late fee. If you are having difficulty clearing your restrictions or checking in, please email the Office of the Registrar at to hold your schedule. If you do not inform the Office of the Registrar in advance, your schedule will not be held and it will be rebuilt depending on course availability.

  • Until you check in, you are not considered an enrolled student and cannot attend classes.

What Are Check-In Restrictions? 

A check-in restriction is a hold on your record that will prevent you from checking in to begin the semester. Each check-in restriction indicates a step that you must take in order to clear it.
