Saint Paul’s Announces Suspension of Classes, College Operations
Saint Paul’s College yesterday announced the suspension of its classes and student housing, as the university faces the revocation of its accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The Richmond Times-Dispatch today reports that the school will continue to offer its evening accelerated degree program for adults, and will keep open its child care center serving about 100 students from the area.
“We made a prudent decision, and it was a difficult one to make,” Kimberly Tetlow, vice president for institutional advancement, said Monday.
SPC’s signature program, the Single Parent Support System which provided housing for 19 single-parent families last year, has been discontinued. Students who were close to graduation have been cleared to resume classes in satellite locations around the state.
The appeal hearing with SACS will be held on Aug. 20.
