Advising and Transfer Events

Advising and transfer events are for all Madison College students and include registration labs, college visits, pre-transfer advising and the transfer fair.

At Madison College your advisor will work with you as you plan to complete your degree and if transfer's in your future, consider the following events:

  • Registration Labs: An opportunity to build your schedule and register for classes. Advisors will be on hand to help you register. Check the MATC calendar to find the dates/times by searching "labs". You can also review self-guided information on how to check your enrollment date, view your degree progress report, search for classes and more.

  • Pre-Transfer Advising: Your chance to learn more about transfer admission and requirements at schools like UW Madison, Edgewood College and UW Milwaukee. You can also speak with advisors representing specific academic majors and degree programs.  To sign up for an appointment, go to the liberal arts section below.

  • College Visits: Check the MATC calendar to determine when the school(s) you're interested in will be on campus, research information they have on their website, transfer opportunities, and create a list of questions. 

  • Transfer Fair: Attend the annual Transfer Fair to talk to 30+ admission representatives from four-year institutions.

  • Search for Advising and Transfer Events by School

    Be sure to check the MATC calendar for specific dates and locations. Take advantage of these opportunities to meet with your program advisor, other colleges and universities    or both.

    Pre-Transfer Advising

    Pre-transfer advising sessions are by appointment only, so you'll want to reserve your time as soon as registration becomes avaliable. Sessions for popular majors fill up fast, so be sure to act quickly to secure your spot. Check the Madison College calendar for dates, times, and locations.
