AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The president of an east Georgia college placed on probation by its accrediting body says it will fix lingering problems.

The Augusta Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1p0VcKa ) that Paine College President George C. Bradley says the institution’s financial base is strengthening and qualified staff has been hired. During a press conference Friday and in written statements to alumni, Bradley says the college has made great strides and has a plan moving forward.

He says the college is paying off its credit line, maxed out at $4 million.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges imposed the sanction after saying the private school in Augusta failed to correct problems during the past two years.

Probation status is the most severe and final sanction possible before a college’s accreditation is revoked.
