Student Handbook

Dear Boston Conservatory at Berklee Student,
As students of Boston Conservatory at Berklee, you are all members of a distinguished, world-class institution whose mission is to help you grow and develop as performing artists and as individuals.
During your time at the Conservatory, the faculty and staff will push you to work harder than you ever have before and practice your art with the highest level of focus and dedication in order to meet our high performance standards. We expect all of our students to become fully immersed in their studies, rehearsals, and performances.
At the same time, we are proud to offer a robust and active student life program and encourage you to become involved with the many other aspects of extracurricular life.  Involvement in student activities—whether it is our Student Government Association (SGA), our diverse offering of clubs and organizations, or our many community outreach projects—offers students rewarding opportunities to form important friendships, establish creative outlets, serve as leaders, and make a difference in other people’s lives. We welcome your participation. In fact, we count on it.
As you navigate your own path as a student, performer, and member of the Boston Conservatory at Berklee community, the Student Handbook serves as your resource for understanding policies and procedures. Please review it for reference.
It is our sincere hope that you will take advantage of everything that Boston Conservatory at Berklee and the city of Boston have to offer. May the coming year be a time of professional growth, personal satisfaction, and happiness.
Best wishes,
Chris Kandus-Fisher, Vice President for Student Affairs, Diversity, and Inclusion
Chris Reade, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Campus Life
