kctcs1aGEORGETOWN, KY – Transferring to a four-year institution became easier for Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) students with the signing of a statewide, multi-program agreement with Georgetown College.

The agreement includes a statewide memorandum of agreement for applied associate programs to transfer to a bachelor’s program at Georgetown College. Programs include: art, business administration, communication and media studies, economics, English, exercise science, health science, history, mathematics, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology, Spanish, theatre, and religion.

“This agreement moves us closer to our goal of providing KCTCS students with seamless pathways to getting a baccalaureate degree,” said KCTCS President Michael B. McCall. “We are extremely proud of our partnership with Georgetown College and believe it will increase student access and success.”

Students seeking admission to Georgetown need to apply through the Office of Admissions and complete the following steps: (1) complete and return the application for admission (the application fee is waived for KCTCS students and graduates, (2) submit an official high school or GED transcript, and (3) submit official copies of transcripts for all post-secondary institutions attended. Additionally, to be considered for admission as a transfer student, a student must have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 for all classes taken.

“Our partnership with KCTCS began when Dr. McCall arrived 14 years ago,” said Georgetown College President William H. Crouch, Jr. “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.”
