Programs of Distinction

At Georgetown, we offer students a variety of wonderful Programs of Distinction for different interests. Students should apply to our Programs of Distinction during their senior year of high school. The first round of applications have all been turned in now, but please reach out if you have any questions about whether you can still apply as some of our programs still have openings.

All of our programs provide students with unique opportunities to make their time in college even more valuable. We have four types of programs: Honors, Pre-Professional, Arts, and Faith-Based. Please see below for more details and links to each program's homepage.

There is another thing that our programs all share: they all come with the opportunity for additional scholarships! Please note that some students receiving special scholarships may not be eligible to receive the additional scholarships, however.




Whatever your medium - film or flute, brush or bass voice - our innovative arts programs are for you! We offer artists private studio space and professional-level film equipment, and we offer musicians unique pep bands or chorales and travel opportunities. Georgetown College is the place for artists looking to hone their craft as part of a beautiful life.



Our oldest and largest program is the Christian Scholars Program, designed to allow students to explore what they are called to do and who they are called to be. It is a wonderful program with classes, retreats, and mission opportunities.

Georgetown Scholars Day


If you are invited to a Georgetown Scholars Day, then you are a good fit for Georgetown College. Many of our best students will come and interview or audition for a spot in one of our Programs of Distinction. It is more than just an interview day, though, it is a day to experience what Georgetown College is about and the care that we provide for our students. This is a good day!

Honors Programs


There are three basic tracks within the Georgetown College Honors Program: Oxford Honors, Science Honors, and Independent Honors. The Georgetown College Honors Program strives to encourage the intellectual growth of the College community by giving highly motivated students at all levels the opportunity to pursue challenging and stimulating academic and cultural experiences.  All Honors Programs require an application and an interview.

Pre-Professional Programs


Our Pre-Professional Programs are as unique as our students' interests, but all provide valuable opportunities for internships, preparation for next steps (such as assistance with standardized exams and practice interviews), and mentorship and advising from a dedicated director.

Due Dates: 

October 25 and January 15   

For students entering college in Fall 2020, there will be two opportunities to interview.

Some programs will also allow later submissions and will complete individual interviews or auditions, so if you have a question about whether you can still apply to a program, please check with your admission counselor. You can contact admissions at 502-863-8009.
