About the Program

Madison Area Technical College offers two degrees, the Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science. The degrees are designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year university. By completing one of these degrees at Madison College, you will generally satisfy the first two years of general education requirements for various majors in four-year colleges and universities and obtain an educational foundation in languages, humanities, sciences, mathematics, and the social sciences.

If you have a particular four-year institution in mind, it is important that you verify the transferability of credits to that college for graduation and for your major. If you have not selected a major field of study, enrolling in the Liberal Arts Transfer program will give you exposure to several areas of study and a broad preparation for transfer.

Transfer contracts have been developed to guarantee admission into select four-year institutions, i.e. UW Madison Transfer Contract. Students need to meet with a Madison College transfer advisor to determine eligibility.  For more information and details click here.

Interested in changing from one Liberal Arts program to another?

  • Students seeking to change from a Liberal Arts plan to a different program (e.g., Administrative Professional, Welding, Judicial Reporting, etc.) will be required to submit a Transfer of Application if looking to change programs within the same semester as the original application. Applications do not transfer from one semester to another; a new program application will be required.
