Offerings at the Madison College - South Campus

The Madison College - South Campus is an access point and a great place to build on your educational and career foundation!  We offer credit and noncredit courses and certificates to meet the needs of greater South Madison residents and employers, such as:

  • College Transfer/Liberal Arts Courses
  • Nursing Assistant
  • Adult Basic Education and high school completion (GED/HSED)
  • English as a Second Language (ESL/ELL)
  • Computers (credit and noncredit)
  • Global languages (credit and noncredit)
  • Entry-level child care certification training (in English, Spanish, and Hmong)
  • Sewing (noncredit), Edible Native Plants, Sustainable Beekeeping
  • Heartsaver/CPR for infants and young children


While the College offers technical diplomas, associate degrees, and certificates, the South Campus focuses on offering select credit certificates aimed at providing foundational skills in key, high-demand areas like computer skills and childcare/early childhood education training.

Certificates provide a small window into College's technical and associate degree programs and many of them are embedded in these degrees. For example, the Preschool Credential at 18 credits, is largely comprised of first-year Early Childhood Education Associate Degree courses, allowing students for a more smooth transition to the associate degree should they enroll in that program.
