European Council Registration Process

There are two application processes for European Council programs: Berry’s and the EC’s. To begin the Berry process, please apply through Berry Abroad. This gets you in our system.

 When you have your passport, please send a copy of the photo page to (Be sure you’ve signed your passport!)

You can bring the completed EC application to International Experiences in 331 Krannert. The Director of International Experiences will sign your application and send it to the EC office. You should receive a confirmation email after they receive the application and you have paid the EC deposit of $300. This email will also tell you which classes you are registered for.

Once accepted, you will continue to make program payments using the EC website. All Berry students are required to enroll in two EC classes, at three credits each, along with any required program classes. You will register for these courses through the state university system, as a transient student through the University of West Georgia. European Council will provide you with information on how to register. A tuition fee (currently $199/credit, but subject to change) will be paid to the University of West Georgia at that time.      

Students are also required to attend the EC’s pre-departure orientation in May, where you will meet your professors and fellow students. After the program, the EC office will send your transcripts to Berry, and the actual classes you took, along with their grades, will be entered by the Registrar.

We’re happy to answer any questions you have about the European Council! Contact the Director of International Experiences at  or at 706-233-4065.
