Welcome to the 2016-17 Berklee Factbook. This factbook has been created for ease of access and transparency to key information about Berklee. With the merger between Berklee College of Music and The Boston Conservatory and the expansion of existing programs, the Berklee community has grown. This factbook helps to outline what the new combined Berklee looks like, and provides information for each legacy institution as well as Berklee as a whole. In the following pages, you will find official statistics on Berklee’s students, faculty, staff, programming, and financial aid. Information was gathered from many areas throughout the institution. Data in the factbook, updated yearly, reflects information for the fall 2016 semester, unless otherwise noted. Facts of particular note include enrollment of nearly 6,000 students in undergraduate degree programs and over 400 in graduate programs; an increase in the graduation rate to 61%; and a strong student to faculty ratio of 10:1. I encourage you to review the information in the factbook and refer back to it as needed. If you have any questions, please contact Institutional Research and Assessment at
