According to CNBC, Temple is just one of three huge U.S. universities that have taken back their honaray degrees since Cosby was read his verdict on Thursday.

“Today the Temple University Board of Trustees has accepted the recommendation of the University to rescind the (1991) honorary degree,” the school said in a statement.

Temple’s announcement followed withdrawals by Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Fifteen schools had already taken back their honors before the verdict he was handed down on Thursday.

Cosby is currently out on a $1 million bail until his sentencing.
