Join us on Saturday, July 6 for a day of music and activities in the City of Arts and Sciences to celebrate the graduation of Berklee Valencia’s master’s students!

In the morning, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., we will have a variety of activities for music lovers of all ages. We will take a break from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. to escape the heat. The activities will continue in the evening, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., culminating in a DJ dance party.

Berklee Valencia Commencement Exercises

Date: Monday, July 8, 2024
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Location: Auditori Superior, Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, Valencia, Spain

Caps and Gowns

Caps, gowns, and tassels are provided at no charge to graduates. They will be available on campus from Monday, July 1, through Wednesday, July 3, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Instructions on how to collect them will be provided closer to these dates.

Note that this is the only opportunity to pick up caps and gowns. They will not be available on commencement day.

You will have time after the ceremony to have your photo taken in your cap and gown. Before leaving, you must return your cap and gown (baskets will be set up), but you may keep your tassel as memorabilia of this occasion.

Getting Your Diploma

When you walk across the stage to receive your diploma, don’t be surprised to find you have been handed just a cover, with no diploma inside. Since final grades will not have been posted yet, actual diplomas are not distributed at the commencement ceremony. Instead, if you have been approved to graduate in July, your diploma will be mailed approximately 12 weeks after the ceremony to the address you will provide.

Diplomas will include your name, degree, and any honors received. The Office of the Registrar will order your diploma using the name entered in the database when you were admitted to Berklee, unless you have indicated differently. Since all diplomas will be mailed, please be sure the permanent address on file with the Registrar’s Office is correct.

Apostille Requirements

If you have any questions regarding getting an apostille for your diploma, contact academicaffairsvalencia@berklee.edu.
