On Tuesday, Feb. 26, Georgetown College signed an agreement with Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), making it easier for students to transfer from a KCTCS school to Georgetown College in order to complete their bachelor’s degree. KCTCS has 16 colleges located on 68 campuses throughout Ky., including Bluegrass, Ashland, Jefferson and Elizabethtown campuses. According to the agreement, this transfer will “increase educational opportunities for the citizens of Ky. and contribute to the development of a seamless system of postsecondary education.” In the words of Michelle Lynch, Vice President of Enrollment, this agreement will lead to “access, affordability and completion” for Ky. students who are working towards a bachelor’s degree.
President William H. Crouch explained that this partnership began when he met KCTCS president Dr. Michael McCall 14 years ago. Crouch said that “with today’s agreement, that partnership goes much deeper as Georgetown College opens its arms to all KCTCS students in Kentucky, including those who would enjoy an Oxford University experience.”
