We’re thrilled to welcome our spring 2022 entering students to Boston Conservatory’s vibrant community! To join us on campus, you must complete the following tasks prior to your arrival. Please review these steps carefully and check this page often, as information will be updated regularly throughout the summer. If you have any questions, contact the Admissions Office at email@example.com or +1 617-912-9153.
All Berklee students, faculty, staff, and families are invited to attend a webinar on December 7 at 1:00 p.m. ET about Berklee’s Covid-19 safety protocols. The webinar will provide an update on the situation nationally, state-wide, and at Berklee, as well as our planning for the spring 2022 semester.
Submit Your Immunizations and Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination by December 1
All entering and transfer students must submit a completed Berklee Entering Student Immunization Form to Magnus Health, Berklee’s provider for collecting, managing, and tracking immunization information. You should receive an email from Magnus Health to the email address that is connected to your application with information on how to access your Magnus Health account. Please be aware that it may take up to a week from your admittance to the institution for your Magnus Health account to be active.
If you submit your vaccination record after December 1, you may not be able to access campus at the start of the semester. If you have concerns about meeting the vaccination deadline, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any general questions, please email Health and Wellness at email@example.com.
International Students: Request Your I-20 Form Immediately
All students from outside the United States who plan to attend Boston Conservatory at Berklee must complete an I-20 form in order to apply for an F-1 student visa at a U.S. consulate or embassy. Review the I-20/F-1 Visa Information page for step-by-step instructions on how to complete your I-20.

International Students: Complete Your English as a Second Language (ESL) Placement Exam
All international students who are not from English-speaking countries are required to complete an online English placement exam, regardless of their TOEFL/IELTS score. The results of this exam will be used to place you in appropriate classes; therefore, we cannot complete your class schedule until you have taken this exam.
If you are required to take this exam, information will be emailed to you.
Activate your Berklee Email Account/OnePass
Approximately a week after submitting your enrollment deposit, you will receive instructions from Berklee Technology Resources on how to activate your school email account. This email account also serves as your Berklee OnePass, which gives you one-click access to many resources, including the Conservatory’s internal website. You must use your Berklee email address for all official school business.
Update Your Information on Self-Services
Self-Service/PowerCampus is a tool for registration, paying bills, and student information. You will receive credentials to access Self-Service from Berklee Technology Resources. First-time login instructions can be found here. Note that your student ID, also referred to as your PowerCampus ID, can be found on your application portal. You can access Self-Service via the Boston Conservatory internal website or directly through Self-Service.
Once you have logged in to Self-Service/PowerCampus for the first time and successfully validated your account, please make sure to update your personal information, including phone number and address, in the “My Profile” tab. All three address fields must be filled out, even if the information is the same in each field.
Submit Proof of High School/Secondary School Graduation
Submit either your official high/secondary school diploma or final transcript that includes a graduation date and an official signature and seal. Transfer students should submit their most recent transcript to update their transfer credit records. Learn more about how to submit these materials.
If you attended a post-secondary school (college or university) within the last five years, or are currently attending one, you must submit the Transfer Student Discipline Record Release Form prior to the beginning of orientation for the first semester of enrollment.

Complete Online Check-In Form

Review Important Health Insurance Information
The state of Massachusetts requires that students be enrolled in a health insurance plan that offers comprehensive coverage. All coverage must be in effect while you are enrolled at Boston Conservatory at Berklee, even while studying abroad, and coverage must be compliant with state and federal regulations under the Affordable Care Act. We also recommend that your insurance plan provides coverage anywhere in the United States and abroad, and that it includes provisions for medical evacuation and repatriation of remains.
All students are automatically enrolled in and charged for Berklee’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
Students may waive (decline) participation in the Berklee SHIP if they can demonstrate coverage with a comparable insurance plan that is consistent with existing state and federal requirements for students enrolled in colleges and universities in Massachusetts. The insurance coverage requirements for waiving the SHIP are not internal policies set by Berklee.
The waiver is completed online on the Gallagher Student Health website.
You must complete an online waiver for each new academic year during which you do not want the institution's plan. Verbal waiver requests, letters, and copies of insurance cards will not be accepted. Should your waiver be denied, information on how to appeal a waiver denial will be available directly to students in the denial email. All decisions made by Gallagher Student Health are final. Berklee engages the professional services of Gallagher Student Health and Special Risk to: communicate to each eligible student how to request a waiver; notify students of the dates by which waiver requests may be made; and review whether or not waiver requests are compliant with Massachusetts regulations.
Learn more about SHIP at berklee.edu/student-health-insurance-plan.
