Guaranteed Transfer Admission Partnerships

College is hard enough – transferring shouldn’t be.

Guaranteed admission agreements with four-year partner colleges make transferring easy!

Guaranteed admission means that after meeting the minimum requirements in Madison College's program, your credits will automatically transfer with you.

Madison College has guaranteed admission agreements with these four-year colleges for students wanting to become elementary education, technical education or art education teachers.

“I really like the idea of being able to help students who could also relate to me as a Latino student. The idea of me being able to help students of color succeed really brought me joy. I want to become the teacher they can go to for help.”

Get Started On Your Teaching Career

“I’ve always loved teaching people new things because I believe I’m vulnerable and approachable. I feel like this also helps people learn. To be able to make mistakes and learn from them, and, most of all, not be judged in the process.”
