Georgetown College is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board for initial and advanced level educator preparation programs. The Athletic Training Program at Georgetown College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). This program is no longer offered to incoming undergraduates, since the program is in process of voluntarily withdrawing from accreditation in preparation for transition to a graduate level program. Affiliations include the American Council of Education, American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Association of American Colleges and Universities, Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities, National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the Lilly Network of Church-Related Colleges and Universities, and the International Association of Baptist Colleges and Universities.

As a Christian institution, Georgetown College builds community through admissions, hiring and promotion policies based on merit, qualification and character. As a matter of policy and in compliance with state and federal laws, Georgetown College operates on the principle of non-discrimination. Georgetown College does not discriminate, either in the admission of students, hiring and promotion of employees, or in the administration of any educational policies, programs, or activities on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age or disability. Because the College is primarily residential in nature, Georgetown College reserves the right to restrict admissions to undergraduate programs on the basis of sex due to limitations in availability of campus housing, if necessary. The College may use religion as a factor in making faculty employment decisions and in Board of Trustees appointments. This policy is in compliance with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Inquiries or concerns should be directed to the Director of Human Resources or the Title IX Coordinator at 502-863-8000.
