Jump Start Information Sessions

If you are considering coming to Madison College as either a full- or part-time student, attend one of our Jump Start Information Sessions to get started on the enrollment process. Come check out over 140 programs of study, including our accelerated programs and transfer opportunities!

Jump Start Information Sessions are designed for prospective students to provide the following:

  • A one-hour overview on admissions, enrollment, financial aid, program prerequisites, career resources and general student services
  • A brief informational portion followed by Q&A
  • Direct, hands-on assistance from our Academic Advisors
  • Optional program-specific add-on sessions for those interested in a particular career area. (See Afternoon/Evening sessions below.)
  • Prospective students interested in a program need to attend a Jump Start session as their first step in the advising process.

Pre-registration for these sessions is not needed, and sessions are available at various campuses. For more information, email or call (608) 246-6239.
