Admissions Process

To enroll in a few classes, you may simply enroll. You do not need to submit an admission application.

To complete a degree, diploma or certificate, you must begin by submitting an admission application.

International Students: Complete the International Student Admission Application Process if you would like to apply for an F-1 or M-1 student visa to attend Madison College.

Domestic Students (students within the USA not requesting student visa support):

  1. Determine the degree, diploma or certificate you would like to pursue.
    Note: Apprenticeships follow a different application process.

  2. Research the following on the program’s Admission Requirements web page:
    • Application Dates
    • Application Materials
    • Admission Requirements

  3. Complete the domestic online admission application for your program and submit with the application fee.

    While paper applications are available by request at the Enrollment Center, additional time is required to complete the application review.

  4. Submit remaining application materials, including official transcripts and test scores.

You will receive a letter with an admission decision after review begins for your semester. In the meantime, you can move forward with your next steps towards earning a degree, diploma or certificate at Madison College.
