Retention and Student Success

Office of Student Success

The Office of Retention and Student Success is dedicated to ensuring that you, the student, have the necessary supports—both inside and outside of the classroom—to fully realize your musical, academic, and personal potential at Berklee College of Music. By supporting you when you face obstacles associated with college life, the Office of Student Success assists you in making connections with Berklee.

Our foundational belief is that you are fully capable of realizing your musical, academic, and professional goals, however we also realize that, at times, you may experience difficulties, be they academic, emotional, or health-related, and we know that family emergencies and other unexpected challenges may arise in life. There are many resources on campus that can help, and we are committed to helping you connect with those resources. When we meet with you, we can often present options which can help you decide how to proceed; in many cases, a short-term change may be the key to long-term success.
