Registration Guide

We created this guide to help you at every stage along your path to graduation, including helping you have a seamless registration experience. Each section below includes instructions and information about building your schedule, understanding My Progress, general registration procedures, and where to go for help.

For entering students only: Entering students do not register for their first semester; they will be placed in the appropriate classes and receive their schedules at the end of orientation week. Learn more about the first-semester schedule.
For Berklee Global Partner entering students only: Review the credit-transfer agreements for your partner school and verify your transfer credits in your account. Specific registration instructions will be sent to your email account before orientation week.

Spring 2023 Registration

Student registration times begin on Monday, November 14 and end on Friday, December 2, but registration remains open until Tuesday, January 3 for the spring semester. (How is my registration time determined?)

Any student who was last enrolled in summer 2021 or earlier must complete the Returning Student process to be able to register for spring 2023.
