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 your degree audit, 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.
