School Overview

Paul Quinn College was founded in 1872 by a small group of African Methodist Episcopal preachers. The school’s original purpose was to educate freed slaves and their children. In 1877, the College moved from Austin to Waco, Texas, and was named Waco College. In 1881, the College was chartered by the State of Texas and changed its name for the final time to Paul Quinn College. Paul Quinn College's purpose is "to provide a quality, faith-based education that addresses the academic, social, and Christian development of students and prepares them to be servant leaders and agents of change in their communities."

Paul Quinn College offers bachelor's degrees in business administration, health and wellness, legal studies, liberal arts, and religious studies, as well as bachelor completion programs fully online.
