Once you have been accepted to a master's program at Berklee College of Music, you should follow the next steps to prepare to begin your program in September.
Submit Your Tuition Deposit
In order to confirm your attendance and reserve your place in the entering class, you must submit your deposit immediately. The deposit will be deducted from your tuition. Waiting to submit your deposit means that Berklee cannot verify your plan to attend and you risk forfeiting your place to another qualified student. The deposit also ensures that you are sent important registration and payment information for the semester you have been accepted into.

Review Visa and Student Residency Information
If you are a citizen of a non–European Union country, or you are from a country that requires a visa to travel to the Schengen Agreement countries, you will need to apply for a "long stay" student visa (for more than 180 days). This visa will allow you to enter Spain and grant you 30 days to apply for a Student Residency Card that will allow you to stay in Spain for up to one year. For more information on visas, click here.
