Transfer Students are different from First-time Freshmen. You know what you want in a college, because you have been to college and found things that you liked… and things you didn’t like. Your questions are focused, and your desires are clear and defined. Or not.

Either way, we are here for you. If you have particular concerns, we want to answer them for you. If you just need to explore, we are here for that too. Let us know how we can help.


Transfer students have two very common concerns: how much will your college cost for me specifically? And how many of my hard-earned credits will you accept?

Financial Aid

We have new and improved transfer scholarships, so there is a good chance that you will find Georgetown College to be affordable as well as excellent. To learn how much aid you might receive, you can complete our affordability calculator here.

Transfer Credit Information

For transfer credits, you can click here to submit your transcript and our registrar will send you a quick audit within three business days!


“Transferring to Georgetown College was a really pleasant surprise, because there is such a tight sense of community. I feel really connected to my professors; I know all of them, and I can reach out to them at any time about anything. Honestly, I feel connected to my own education now, and it has made me value my education a lot more. Last semester I was on the Dean’s List! That has never happened before, but here I feel like everyone is working to help me success.”
 Victoria Smith, 2018

 


KCTCS Course Equivalencies

Transferring from a community college to a four-year institution can be difficult. Thanks to an exciting partnership between Georgetown College and  Kentucky’s Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), we’ve made it easier than ever before. Students receiving their Associates in Arts (AA) degree from KCTCS can now transfer to Georgetown College with a plan in place to complete their bachelor’s degree in an additional 2 years.

The information below will assist in knowing how courses will transfer from KCTCS. If you have any questions regarding these equivalencies, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 502-863-8024 or registrar@georgetowncollege.edu.

For questions concerning transfer admissions please contact the Office of Admissions.
