LAWRENCEVILLE, Va. (AP) - Saint Paul's College says it will begin its fall semester Sept. 24 now that its loss of accreditation has been put on hold.
 
    
Registration runs from Sept. 21 through Sept. 28.
 
    
The historically black liberal arts school in Lawrenceville is appealing a June denial of its accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. A federal judge in Atlanta last month issued a preliminary injunction reinstating the college's probationary status while the appeal is pending. The college remains eligible to participate in state financial aid programs and Title IV federal student assistance programs.
 
    
Saint Paul's was founded in 1888.
