Berklee Summer Programs welcomes students from all over the world to join us for the summer.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires that any student who is not a U.S. citizen participating in the Five-Week Summer Performance Program, two or more weeks of Day Sessions: Music, both weeks of Day Sessions: Dance or the Twelve-Week Full-Credit Summer Program apply for an F-1 student visa. If you are participating in the Twelve-Week Full-Credit Summer Program, contact the Office of Admissions for required Form I-20 and visa procedures.
In order to apply for an F-1 student visa, students are required to obtain a Form I-20 from Berklee. Students are encouraged to send the required documents to the Office of Summer Programs as early as possible to ensure that there is enough time to apply for a student visa. Do not enter the U.S. on a tourist visa or a tourist status to participate in the Five-Week Summer Performance Program, Day Sessions, or the Full-Credit Summer Program.
If you are already in the United States on a different visa status, or hold an F-1 status at another institution, please notify the Office of Summer Programs as soon as possible.
