Semester Check-In Information

​What Is Check-In?

Check-in is the way you confirm your enrollment for the next semester. To enroll for the 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.

How to Check in

During the check-in period, after you have cleared all check-in requirements, check in by going to and clicking the Semester Check-In link in the Check-In section. Click the Submit button at the bottom of the next screen, and then you will see a green SUCCESS! message once you are successfully checked in.

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 the 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 contact the office which administers your particular restriction to have your schedule held. Otherwise, your schedule will not be held and you will have to rebuild it 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. 

Log in to, and check your restrictions by clicking on the Semester Check-In link in the Check-In section. Your individual restrictions will be listed along with steps for resolving them. If you have any questions or are having difficulty using to check in, please email
