Cabinetmaking and Millwork Frequently Asked Questions
When can I start the program?
At this point, you can only start the Cabinetmaking program in the fall semester.
A waitlist can form for this program, so the year you start depends on when you applied and the status of the waitlist.
When can I apply, and how can I apply?
What are the admissions requirements?
Does this program have a waitlist?
A waitlist always forms for this program, so the earlier you apply the better.
Even if you are initially placed on a waitlist, you may be able to take the spot of someone who decides not to attend.
Last year, all students who started the program had application complete dates of mid-December or earlier. Some of these students had initially been placed on the waitlist, and were admitted when someone before them decided not to attend.
Students with application complete dates of mid-December or later had one full year on the waitlist before they could start the Cabinetmaking and Millwork classes.
What is the cost of tuition?
How long is the program and what kind of diploma/degree will I receive?
What is a typical schedule?
Students go full-time to day classes (typically 7:30 am -2:30 pm, M-TH, and 7:30-11:30 on Friday) for two semesters.
All classes are held at the Madison Truax campus.
Can I start working towards graduation requirements before I am accepted into the program?
If you would like an introduction to woodworking techniques, Madison College offers some non-degree evening courses in this area. These courses can help you learn basic techniques. They will not, however, meet graduation requirements. You can look at our non-degree woodworking course schedules
Can I just take one or two of the Cabinetmaking/Millwork classes without applying to the program?
Because this program always has a waitlist, Cabinetmaking and Millwork classes are full to capacity with program students. As a result, you typically cannot register for our program classes that take place in the lab before being admitted into the program. If there is space in a classroom-based course, you may be able to get special permission from the instructor to take the course.
