DE PERE (AP) — Nearly 2,200 people have applied to be the first 25 students at the Medical College of Wisconsin’s new Green Bay-area campus.
The new campus is at St. Norbert College in De Pere. Construction has finished and students are scheduled to arrive July 1.
Press-Gazette Media reports admission offers have been sent to prospective students. Matthew Hunsaker, dean of the Green Bay-area campus, says he expects admitted applications to make their decisions by the end of April.
Students at the new Medical College campus will take classes through video conferences as well as with in-person instructors from St. Norbert, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and others.
The Medical College currently has a campus in Milwaukee. It plans to open one in central Wisconsin next year.
