Your Admission Expiration

Your admission is dependent on the successful completion of any outstanding schoolwork. Admission is valid for the academic year to which you apply; you may not defer your enrollment. If you would like to begin your studies in a year other than the one in which you were admitted, you must reapply and resubmit all required application materials.  


For International Students

International students are required to obtain an F-1 student visa prior to commencing their study in the U.S. You will need an I–20 form from Berklee in order to apply for an F-1 student visa at a U.S. consulate or embassy.
