DeVry University will close Wisconsin campus, offer online classes only - Karen Herzog, Journal Sentinel

DeVry University, a for-profit college that has had a presence in downtown Milwaukee since 1983, announced Thursday it will close its only Wisconsin campus Dec. 31 and move to offering only online courses. The closing will affect 247 graduate and undergraduate students, according to spokeswoman Melanie Wright. Half of the university's students assigned to the Milwaukee campus — a suite at 411 E. Wisconsin Ave. — take online courses, while 80% take a combination online and campus-based courses, Wright said. Students will be offered the options of completing their program through DeVry's online courses, transferring to another DeVry University campus outside of Wisconsin, or transferring to a local college or university with a comparable program, Wright said. http://www.jsonline.com/news/education/devry-university-will-close-campus-offer-online-classes-only-b99487482z1-301149851.html
