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.

Only students who completed their degree requirements in July 2020 or appear on track to finish in December 2020 will be eligible and approved to participate in the July 2020 ceremony.

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 registrarvalencia@berklee.edu.

This year's concert featured special guest, composer and guitar legend Al Di Meola, who also received an Honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee at the 2018 Commencement Ceremony.
