Contact the school(s) or GED/HSED Testing Center and send official transcripts to: Madison College Enrollment Center, 1701 Wright Street, Madison, WI 53704

Transcripts must be on file prior to the application and/or credential deadline. Applicants are responsible for submitting official transcripts that show completion of any unique course requirements. Visit the Transcripts web page for more information.

Accelerated and Online programs require completion of the Orientation to Online and Accelerated Learning for admittance.

Note: In-progress high school transcripts will not delay the processing of a high school senior's admission application, unless additional testing or specific courses are required.

2. Residency:

Per Wisconsin Statute TCS-10, out-of-state residents cannot be placed on a waiting list and out-of-district residents are not permitted to be placed on a waiting list for a program that closes prior to the out-of-district resident processing date. For admissions purposes, Minnesota residents are processed as out-of-district residents. Refer to the Residency Determination web page for more information.
