STREAMLINING THE STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE
Berry College Transforms Study Abroad Processes with Terra Dotta
In what started out as a one-person, paper-only study abroad office, Berry College implemented Terra Dotta as their global education solution, digitally transforming their processes, cutting down on hours of administrative work, and leaving more time for the advisor to connect with students.
Through the use of Terra Dotta’s Study Abroad solutions, Berry College has streamlined its international experience operations to showcase its many programs, enable online applications and seamless data input, and provide students and administrators alike quick access to accurate information.

  • Most services were provided in-person
