Once you've been admitted into your program, the steps below will help you get ready for your first day of classes at Madison College. 

Class capacity is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis.

  • Activate Student Account

    All program students at Madison College need to have an active student account. If you haven’t already, activate your account for access to:

    • Student email
    • Online myMadisonCollege Student Center
    • Blackboard
  • Apply for Financial Assistance

    Need help paying for college? Different types of financial assistance may be available to those who qualify, such as:

    • Financial aid
    • Scholarships
    • Veterans benefits
  • Prepare for Program Registration

    If you have been accepted into the program, you will be invited to attend Advising & Registration or orientation to get enrolled in classes. This is mandatory, so watch your personal email for more information.

    Orientation is mandatory. You will be required to provide lab results and vaccination documentation from your healthcare provider. You are also required to complete a Background Information Disclosure and Criminal History Check (CHC) prior to placement in the field. Information obtained from the CHC may affect your ability to secure a WI EMS Training Permit. Under no circumstances are Paramedic program students assigned to a clinical area until all requirements are met.  More detailed information on the Health History and Criminal History Checks will be provided at the orientation.

  • Pay for Classes

    Tuition is due each semester by the tuition due date. You may also find it helpful to start familiarizing yourself with the college's refund policy and available payment options.

    Credit classes are billed electronically through your Student Center. Paper bills are not mailed.
