===Scotia Seminary===
Barber-Scotia began as a female [[Seminary#Teaching seminaries|seminary]] in 1867. Scotia Seminary was founded by the Reverend Luke Dorland and chartered in 1870. This was a project by the [[Presbyterian Church]] to prepare young [[African American]] [[Southern United States|southern]] women (the daughters of former [[slavery|slaves]]) for careers as [[social work]]ers and teachers. It was the coordinate women's school for Biddle University (now [[Johnson C. Smith University]]).<ref>{{cite web|url=http://cdl.library.cornell.edu/cgi-bin/moa/pageviewer?frames=1&coll=moa&view=50&root=%2Fmoa%2Famis%2Famis0033%2F&tif=00358.TIF|title= Part of a Tour Through the Carolinas|accessdate= 2008-08-13|publisher= [[Cornell University]]}}</ref>

It was the first [[Women's colleges in the Southern United States#Historically black colleges|historically black female institution of higher education]] established after the [[American Civil War]]. ''[[The Charlotte Observer]]'', in an interview with Janet Magaldi, president of Piedmont Preservation Foundation, stated, "Scotia Seminary was one of the first black institutions built after the Civil War. For the first time, it gave black women an alternative to becoming domestic servants or field hands."<ref name=landmark>{{Citation|first=Leslie|last=Gross|title=FAITH HALL: A LANDMARK IN NEED OF FRIENDS|date =May 9, 1999| pages=3K|publisher=''[[The Charlotte Observer]]''}}</ref>

It was renamed to Scotia Women's College in 1916. In 1930, the seminary was merged with another female institution, Barber Memorial College, which was founded in 1896 in [[Anniston, Alabama]] by Margaret M. Barber as a memorial to her husband.<ref name=place>{{cite book|url=http://books.google.com/books?id=ZEkUAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA48&dq=%22Barber+Memorial+College%22+Anniston+Alabama|title=History of Alabama and Dictionary of Alabama Biography |accessdate= 2008-08-12|coauthors= Thomas McAdory Owen, Marie Bankhead Owen |year= 1921}}</ref><ref name=date>{{cite book|url=http://books.google.com/books?id=XGxAAAAAIAAJ&q=%22Barber+Memorial+College%22+Anniston+Alabama&dq=%22Barber+Memorial+College%22+Anniston+Alabama&pgis=1|title= College Names, p. 173|accessdate= 2008-08-12|last= Keiser|first= Albert|year= 1952}}</ref> This merger created Barber-Scotia Junior College for women.<ref name=merge>{{cite book|url=http://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=wHVH4Si6qcAC&oi=fnd&pg=PA195&dq=%22barber+memorial+college%22&ots=dPNiYAgDFw&sig=sfgd33FaG-UWp-EKzMLAaPt9KmI#PPA208,M1|title= Two-Year Colleges for Women and Minorities|accessdate=2008-08-12|last=Townsend|first=Barbara|year= 1999}}</ref>
The school granted its first bachelor's degree in 1945, and became a four-year [[Women's colleges in the United States|women's college]] in 1946. In 1954, Barber–Scotia College became a [[coeducational]] institution and received accreditation from the [[Southern Association of Colleges and Schools]]. Today, the college maintains close ties to the [[Presbyterian Church]].<ref name=official>{{cite web|url=http://www.b-sc.edu/|title= Official website

On June 24, 2004, one week after appointing its new president, Dr. Gloria Bromell Tinubu, the college learned that it had lost its [[educational accreditation|accreditation]] which meant that students became ineligible for federal aid (an estimated 90% of the school's students depended on federally funded aid) and that many employees would be laid off.<ref name=closing>{{cite news|url=http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0DXK/is_14_21/ai_n6358318/print?tag=artBody;col1|title=In not so good company: another HBCU loses its accreditation, but with new leadership Barber-Scotia College is meeting its challenges head on|accessdate= 2008-08-14|date=August 26, 2004|publisher=Black Issues in Higher Education | first=Tracie | last=Powell}}</ref><ref name=PCUSAJuly2004>{{cite web|url=http://www.pcusa.org/pcnews/2004/04331.htm|title= Barber-Scotia College loses accreditation|accessdate=2008-08-13|last=Silverstein|first=Evan|date=2004-07-24|publisher=Presbyterian News Service| archiveurl= http://web.archive.org/web/20080815201436/http://www.pcusa.org/pcnews/2004/04331.htm| archivedate= 15 August 2008 <!--DASHBot-->| deadurl= no}}</ref> It lost its accreditation due to what the [[Southern Association of Colleges and Schools]] said was a failure to comply with SACS Principles and Philosophy of Accreditation (Integrity), as the school "awarded degrees to nearly 30 students in the adult program who SACS determined hadn’t fulfilled the proper requirements".<ref name=PCUSAJuly2004/>
Former President Sammie Potts resigned in February when it became public. As over 90% of the students at Barber-Scotia received some sort of federal financial aid, when the campus lost accreditation and was therefore no longer eligible to receive federal financial aid for its students, under the Department of Education enrollment then dropped from 600 students in 2004 to 91 students in 2005 and on-campus housing was closed down.<ref name=resign>{{cite web|url=http://www.pcusa.org/pcnews/2005/05614.htm|title=Barber-Scotia president resigns|accessdate=2008-08-13|last=Silverstein

During her tenure President Gloria Bromell-Tinubu led a strategic planning effort to change the college from a four-year liberal arts program to a college of entrepreneurship and business, and established partnerships with accredited colleges and top-tiered universities.<ref name=resign/> She would later leave the college when the new Board leadership decided to pursue religious studies instead.

== 2009 ==
Barber-Scotia currently has an enrollment of 120 full-time students. It has submitted its application for accreditation and after a successful accreditation site visit during April 2009 has begun its Institutional Self-Study process. Documentation will be submitted to the national accrediting body for review. During January 2010 a site visit team will arrive on campus for review of documentation, staff and policies. It is the College's hope that it will be presented to the full commission for candidacy (provisional accreditaion) during April 2014.
The college currently offers the following four degree programs: Bachelors of Arts in Business, Bachelors of Arts in Religious Studies, Bachelors of Arts in Sports Management and a Bachelors of Science in Bio-Energy. Each academic discipline has several fields of concentrations.
Barber–Scotia College's athletic programs are members of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). Barber–Scotia College currently fields a men's and women's basketball team. Barber-Scotia also fields a men's post-graduate basketball team. It is also exploring adding additional athletic programs, such as men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer and track and field.
==Notable alumni==
One of Scotia Seminary's most notable alumnae was [[Mary McLeod Bethune]], advisor to President [[Franklin D. Roosevelt]].,<ref name=marybio>{{cite web|url=http://www.pbs.org/wnet/aaworld/reference/articles/mary_mcleod_bethune.html|title= African American World: Mary Mcleod Bethune|accessdate= 2008-08-13|publisher=[[Public Broadcasting Service|PBS]]}} {{Dead link|date=September 2010|bot=H3llBot}}</ref> who also started a school for black students in [[Daytona Beach, Florida]] that eventually became [[Bethune-Cookman University]].
[[Katie Geneva Cannon]], the first African-American female ordained as minister by the [[Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)|Presbyterian Church]], and [[Ida Van Smith]], an early aviatrix, were also graduates of the college.
