Kentucky Wesleyan and Georgetown (Ky.) College have been placed on probation by the regional accreditor for the southern United States, according to reports by the Lexington Herald-Leader and Northern Kentucky Tribune.
The probations were announced last week at a meeting of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Both private colleges have struggled in recent years. The accreditor cited concerns over financial management.
Georgetown was first placed on probation in 2014.
Kentucky Wesleyan in Owensboro will be on probation for six months; Georgetown College will be on probation for 12 months.
Georgetown has made progress since 2014, when the Herald-Leader report was published, and college officials expect to remedy all issues over the next 12 months.
