Returning Student Information

How to Return to Berklee College of Music

If you have completed at least one semester of undergraduate study at Berklee College of Music and then have been away from the school for at least one fall or spring semester, you are considered a returning student. Returning to the college is easy; you do not need to reapply for admission, and you may return at any time.

To begin the process, you need to simply fill out and submit a Returning Student Form. We recommend you do this at least one month before registration begins for the semester you wish to return. Registration for the summer (May) and fall (September) semesters begins in late March/early April, and registration for the spring (January) semester begins in early November.

If you have any questions regarding re-entrance, contact Amanda Connolly, returning and special student groups specialist in the Office of the Registrar by phone at 617-747-2242 or via e-mail at
