Payments and Policies
Students are required to pay tuition and fees by the payment due date for each semester. If students add additional courses during the add/drop period, they must pay the additional fee or fees at the time of enrollment. If payment is not received, Berklee will make every internal effort to collect these funds. Restrictions will be placed on any account with an outstanding balance, prohibiting access to grades, transcripts, degrees, diplomas, and participation in any future term at Berklee. These restrictions will remain until the account is paid in full.
All students who seek to withdraw from Berklee are required to settle all financial obligations with the college, to return all college property, and to complete a Withdrawal from the College form. Students withdrawing before the first day of the program (in September) will receive a 100 percent credit of their tuition charges. However, the nonrefundable tuition deposit and all fees will be forfeited.
Once a student is withdrawn from Berklee, there is no opportunity to be readmitted during the same academic year. A withdrawn student who wishes to return must complete the admissions process and be newly accepted.
Withdrawal Tuition Credit
Students withdrawing during the first four weeks of the program are eligible for a tuition credit according to the following schedule:

These percentages are weekly guidelines; actual refunds are based on calendar days.

As a supplement to Berklee’s refund policy, we also offer a tuition insurance program through Grad Guard, which provides 100 percent reimbursement of all insured tuition, room and board, and some fees. Coverage includes withdrawal due to illness, injury, mental health issues, and other reasons. Learn more about tuition insurance.
You cannot defer your acceptance to a future academic year. You are only accepted for the academic year to which you apply. If you want to attend the following year, you must reapply and resubmit all the required application materials.
