Check-In for Continuing and Returning Students
To enroll for the fall semester, Berklee College of Music students must log in to my.berklee.edu and select the “Semester Check-In” link in the Check-In section. Before a student can complete the check-in process, all check-in restrictions must be cleared.
The check-in period for the fall 2018 semester is September 1–7. Students who fail to complete the check-in process by 11:59 p.m. EDT on September 7 will be considered by the college not to be attending the fall semester and will be dropped from all their courses. Under special circumstances and in direct communication with the Office of the Registrar, a student may be allowed to check-in after the September 7 deadline. A $250 late fee will be will assessed, and the student's schedule will need to be rebuilt according to seat availability.
What to Do Before September 1
Beginning one month before the start of the semester and before arriving on campus, you should log in to my.berklee.edu and check your individual restrictions by clicking on the "Semester Check-In" link in the Check-In section. Any restrictions will be listed along with information about how to resolve them.
One of the restrictions is to pay tuition in full. Tuition is due August 1 for the fall 2018 semester. Students who do not pay their bill by this date will be subject to a $250 late payment fee assessed by the Office of the Bursar.
If you are a returning international student and were issued a new SEVIS Record, you must also verify your immigration information. Please see International Student Check-In Requirements (login required) for more information.
Online Check-In (September 1–7)
Beginning September 1, after all check-in requirements have been cleared and no later than September 7, you must check in by clicking the “Check-In” button at the bottom of the “Semester Check-In” screen. A successful check-in will be indicated by a "SUCCESS!" message in green and a confirmation email that will be sent to you within 24 hours. No student will be considered enrolled for the fall semester who has not received this confirmation. Once checked in, you can view your schedule (with room numbers), and add and drop courses.
Review the below sections for more information.
The add/drop period at the beginning of each term is the first five days of the semester. After the initial five days of classes, students are not allowed to drop a course from their schedule. For semesters that begin on a Tuesday, the add/drop period extends through the following Monday.
You can add or drop courses during designated times on my.berklee.edu. In the Registration section, select "Search and Register for Classes" to add courses or "View/Change Schedule" to drop courses. Online add/drop is available except for the hours between 1:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. EDT. You will receive a confirmation of schedule changes along with revised tuition charges and any lab fees.
Fall 2018 courses can be added or dropped up until September 14. To add a course to your schedule after the deadline, a petition for a late add must be approved by the instructor of the course and the course chair.
Students may not drop a course from their schedule or change sections after the add/drop deadline; you may, however, withdraw from classes by requesting an advance grade of "W" by the November 16 deadline. (See Withdrawals and Refunds for information on how to withdraw from a class.) If you wish to drop all your courses and cancel your registration, you must go to the Office of the Registrar, 939 Boylston Street, second floor (enter through 921 Boylston Street, third floor).
If you experience any technical difficulties, please contact the Student Computer Support Center on the lower level of 186 Massachusetts Avenue, email them at email@example.com, or call them at 617-747-8800. The Office of the Registrar is also available to assist you with online registration.
Berklee's student health insurance plan is offered through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and is administered by Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk. If a student in residence on the Boston campus is interested in waiving the Berklee plan, they must demonstrate comparable coverage that is compliant with Massachusetts laws regarding student health insurance and the Affordable Care Act.
To waive the Berklee student health insurance plan, visit Gallagher's website for Berklee and click on "Student Waive" in the left navigation bar. Be sure to have your current health insurance card available as information from this card will be needed to complete the Waiver form. The deadline for waiving 2018–2019 coverage for entering and continuing students is September 28, 2018.
For all questions regarding the Berklee student health insurance plan, waiver assistance, or for further information, contact Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk at 800-391-8057, Monday–Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EDT, or via live chat, Monday–Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT.
All students enrolled at Berklee's campus in Boston are required to be immunized against the following before attending class:
- measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR);
- tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap);
- hepatitis B; and
- meningococcal disease (for students aged 21 and under).
You may have some expired immunizations that you will need to update. Your check-in process cannot be finalized until you have submitted written documentation of your immunizations. Students who entered Berklee College of Music in fall 2017 or earlier should submit these records to the Office of the Registrar. They may be mailed; dropped off in person at 939 Boylston Street, second floor (enter through 921 Boylston Street, third floor); or sent by fax to 617-747-8520. Students who entered Berklee College of Music in spring 2018 or later should email these records to Health and Wellness at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have lost your Berklee student identification card (Berklee One Card), you must pay a $20 replacement fee at the Public Safety Department located in the basement of 155 Massachusetts Avenue building. Another form of ID must be presented.
It is recommended that all students who have declared a major do an online academic evaluation (EVAL) before the end of add/drop. To do this, log into my.berklee.edu and select "My Degree Audit" under the Academic Profile section.
