Certificate Programs Tuition and Fees

For the exact tuition cost of a particular certificate program, please refer to the that particular certificate’s page. For a full list of multi-course certificate programs offered by Berklee Online, go here. The registration and technology fee is $175 per certificate program. To reserve your seat in a certificate program, you must submit this one time non-refundable and non-transferable registration fee of $175.

Note: The registration and technology fee is estimated and subject to change. The registration and technology fee can be applied towards the certificate program as long as you begin study within two terms. After this time, the fee will expire.

For Certificate Programs, we offer two payment options, which are:

1. Full payment up front: Students can opt to pay the full tuition amount up front and receive a savings of 10% on tuition. In addition to tuition, a one-time non-refundable registration and technology fee of $175 will be charged at the time of enrollment in the certificate program.

2. Pay per Term: Students can opt to pay for each course during the term they wish to take the course. The one-time $175 non-refundable registration and technology fee will be due at the time of enrollment into the certificate program.

By paying tuition promptly, you will ensure enrollment in the course of your choice and timely delivery of all required course materials. Please see the course requirements for necessary books and materials. In some cases, students may be required to purchase course materials from one of our music industry partners. The prices charged will include an educational discount which we are pleased to offer our students.

Changing from pay per term to full payment up front

Students can change the payment option from per term to full payment at any time during their first term by sending a request to the Continuing Education Registrar at registrar@online.berklee.edu. The 10% discount will be deducted from any unpaid courses. It will not be applied to any courses already paid.

Changing from full payment up front to pay per term

Students wishing to change the payment option from full payment to per term need to do so prior to making a payment towards tuition. Requests to change a payment option should be sent in writing to the Continuing Education Registrar at registrar@online.berklee.edu.
