Once Accepted

Once you have been accepted to a master's degree program at Berklee College of Music on the Valencia campus, you should follow the following steps to prepare to begin your program in September.

Your Next Steps

Submit your tuition deposit

To accept your admissions offer and reserve your place in the class starting in September 2017, a nonrefundable $2,500 tuition deposit must be made in U.S. Dollars by the below deadline.

Due to limited spots in each program, students are encouraged to make the deposit as soon as possible. Once the program reaches full capacity, students depositing subsequently will be put on a wait-list. Tuition deposits are nonrefundable and cannot be deferred to future academic years, nor may scholarship or federal loan money be used to pay the deposit. Your tuition deposit will be deducted from your first tuition payment.

Tuition Deposit Deadline: May 1, 2017

Keep an eye on your inbox

Between the time you are accepted and the first day of orientation, you will receive a number of important emails from several departments, including admissions, your program director, student affairs, financial aid, and the international career center.

These emails will contain information about:

  • how to apply for graduate assistantship positions;
  • summer homework assignments;
  • orientation information;
  • invitations to Q&A sessions for incoming students; and
  • information about applying for your student visa and residency.

All these communications are meant to help you transition into your new academic experience in Valencia and will be sent to the email you used on the application. Make sure to check your inbox frequently.

Request U.S. Federal Funding (U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents)

Students who are U.S citizens or permanent residents may apply for Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford loans through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Graduate students may be eligible to borrow up to $20,500 under the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan program. The $20,500 will be divided and distributed evenly across all three semesters. Interest will begin to accrue upon disbursement and the interest rate is fixed at 5.31 percent. The loan also has a 1 percent origination fee that is deducted proportionately each time that a loan disbursement is made.
