BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — A New Orleans university is closing a satellite campus in Mississippi.

Tulane University is closing its Biloxi campus, citing enrollment of just 92 students.

Officials say no new students will be enrolled. However, the school says it will continue classes for those seeking degrees, possibly through next fall. If students don’t complete degrees before Tulane closes the campus, the university says it will help students transfer their credits to another college.
