Paine College interim president says the university could become the next school to rescind an honorary degree awarded to Bill Cosby.

Interim President Samuel Sullivan told the Augusta Chronicle that the school's board of trustees will vote on rescinding Cosby's 2003 honorary doctorate during a meeting next week. Paine College is located in Augusta, Georgia.

Sullivan says numerous sexual assault allegations against the comedian have led the school's leadership to consider revoking his degree.

Baltimore's Goucher College and Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, both announced this week that they rescinded honorary degrees given to Cosby.

Court documents unsealed in July show the 78-year-old Cosby admitting extramarital relationships with several women, some of whom accuse him of sexual assault.

Cosby has never been charged with a crime.
