ALEXANDRIA—Classes may be kicking off Sept. 24 at Saint Paul’s College, but that doesn’t mean all is well at the Lawrenceville institution.
A court order issued in late August by the U.S. District Court for Northern Georgia temporarily reinstated the school’s accreditation, which was revoked in June by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges over a disastrous financial situation. The court order allows the roughly 400-student, historically black school to continue classes — at least, for now.
“The preliminary injunction reinstates the accreditation of St. Paul’s College as a member on probation,” the letter from the commission reads.
