Directed Study and Internship Process

Left Nav

Congratulations on pursuing academic study or internship outside the United States! Students completing a Directed Study or Internship need to follow these steps to prepare for the experience:

  • Make an appointment with the Director of International Experiences by calling 706-233-4065.

  •  Submit the waiver of liability Berry asks independent study students to sign. This will be e-mailed to you or given to you during your appointment.

  • Notify International Experiences of your travel dates and emergency contacts. At this point, we will register you for an insurance policy that will cover you while abroad. This insurance will be charged to your student account. If you are participating in a program that includes insurance, please notify International Experiences, by email at so that insurance is not ordered for you. 

  • For internships, in addition to the above, contact the Career Center to ensure that you are completing the required paperwork and a Professionalism and Internship Success workshop.

Once all of this has been completed, the Director of International Experiences will sign your one-stop form. You will then be charged tuition by the business office. Let us know if you have any questions about this process.
