    Paul Quinn College has lost an appeal of a decision that stripped the state's oldest historically black college of its accreditation.

    Paul Quinn College has lost an appeal of a decision that stripped the state's oldest historically black college of its accreditation.

    The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools said Monday that Paul Quinn's appeal was denied.

    The association voted in June to end Paul Quinn's accreditation, citing finances and student outcomes.

    The Dallas liberal arts college can't award degrees without accreditation. Additionally, students can't receive federal or state financial aid.

    An appeals committee ruled that the accrediting agency followed procedure and was "neither arbitrary nor unreasonable" in reaching its decision.

    Paul Quinn president Michael Sorrell says the college is considering its legal options.
