New Student and Family Programs


New Student and Family Programs provide comprehensive resources and services for entering students and families to support a successful transition to the Berklee community. Our student-centered approach focuses on holistic development, promoting an inclusive and meaningful foundation upon which students cultivate their success as contributors of artistry, scholarship, and leadership.

New Student Orientation

Berklee welcomes new students and their families for orientation at the beginning of the semester, during which you can learn about campus life, academics, and other experiences and opportunities available to students.
