Fall Enrollment

Applicants are considered for admission based on their audition results in conjunction with academic preparation and artistic and academic recommendations.

For applicants who have submitted a complete application by the December 1 deadline, decisions for openings in the incoming Fall (September) class are announced on the following dates:

  • March 15 for Graduate Students in the Music and Theater Divisions
  • April 1 for all Undergraduate (BFA and BM) students

Applicants are required to notify The Boston Conservatory regarding their intent to enroll no later than April 15 for Graduate Students in the Music and Theater Divisions, and May 1 for all BFA and BM candidates. This can be done by clicking on the "New Student Enrollment Form" in the online acceptance letter and submitting a non-refundable online tuition deposit of $500 and housing deposit (if applicable) of $250.

Applications submitted after the December deadline will be reviewed on a case-by-case rolling basis and will continue until all openings are filled or until June 1, whichever comes first.

Applying to Multiple Programs

All applicants who intend on applying to multiple degree programs must submit a complete and separate application (including the application fee and supporting documents) for each program to which they are applying. If admitted to two programs, students must choose one program in which to enroll by the deposit deadline, as students are permitted to enroll in only one program at a time. Students are not permitted to double major or minor. Applying to multiple programs will not increase an applicant's chance of admission.

Waiting List

The Boston Conservatory maintains a waiting list for applicants to select majors. Upon notification of wait list status, students are given a timeline that addresses their receipt of a final admission decision (and enrollment deadline, if applicable).

Re-Admission After Leave of Absence

Students seeking re-admission after an official leave of absence of less than two semesters must contact the Registrar to re-enroll. These students are not required to complete an application or re-audition. Students seeking re-admission after an official leave of absence of more than two semesters must complete a new application and re-audition. Students seeking re-admission without an official leave of absence must submit a new application and re-audition.
