Georgetown College is required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) to notify students of their rights under the act or, if pre-college students, their parents of the rights.
The Student Handbook is an official document of Georgetown College and contains the current nonacademic policies governing student life. The policies and regulations published in the Handbook supercede the constitutions, bylaws, or standing rules of any organizations. Students are expected to become familiar with the contents of this Handbook and conduct themselves accordingly.
In compliance with federal law, including provisions of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Georgetown College does not illegally discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, age, or disability in its administration of education policies, programs, or activities, or in its admissions policies. Inquires or concerns should be directed to the Provostâ€™s Office at 8034.
Off-campus social functions by service, club, or social organizations are beyond the scope of control by the College. Neither the presence of an advisor or other employee of the College; the listing of the functions on the College calendar; nor any other College involvement with the club or organization or event shall be construed to cause an off-campus event to be a College event or one which the College, its agents, servants, or employees supervise or control.
No service, club, or social organization is permitted to present itself as an agent of the College. The College does not permit the use of its name in any way by service, club, or social organization in the purchase, rental, lease, borrowing, or any other supplies or services secured for the purpose of holding a social activity.
Georgetown College is not responsible for any indebtedness, account, or other financial arrangement made by any student, student organization, faculty member, or other employee, unless authorized by official purchase order signed by the President, Treasurer, or Controller, or in writing by the Trustees through the President. The Board of Trustees establishes these policies in order to maintain fair, consistent, and sound business relationships.
