We cannot accept cash payments in Valencia.
We will be happy to apply advance credit to your account for a scholarship awarded from an outside agency. You must submit a letter to the Office of Student Accounts from the scholarship source, on their letterhead, stating that the scholarship will be mailed directly to Berklee. The letter must also include the amount of your scholarship, the date when payment will be submitted, a request for a statement (if required by the sponsor), and the name and phone number of a contact person. It is essential for the Office of Student Accounts to receive this letter prior to your payment due date in order to avoid any delays.
Tuition Payment Plan
As a courtesy to our degree students, we offer a flexible payment plan for fall and spring semesters through our partner Nelnet Campus Commerce (Nelnet). This plan allows students and families to pay their tuition and fees in smaller installments. The plan requires a $40 enrollment fee and a deposit of one-third of the payment plan balance upon enrollment as well as automatic payments for subsequent installments.
To enroll, please log in to your my.berklee.edu and select the Monthly Tuition Payment Plan link in the Financial Information and Forms menu. First, you will create a Nelnet account. Then, you will select Set up a Payment Plan. If a family member or sponsor is paying on your behalf, you can select Add an Authorized Party, and your payer will receive an invitation to create a Nelnet account.
For more information regarding payments, please contact the Valencia Campus Office of Student Accounts at email@example.com, or Nelnet customer service at 800-609-8056. Nelnet representatives are available Monday–Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. CST and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. CST.
