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 Guaranteed Transfer Contract. Students need to meet with a Madison College transfer advisor to determine eligibility. For more information and details click here.
Note: Students are placed in English or mathematics courses based on their scores on the COMPASS or ASSET test or on completion of the appropriate prerequisite/s.
