Cosmetology Next Steps After Acceptance

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

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

  • Activate Student Account

    All Cosmetology 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

    As a requirement for the Cosmetology program, students must complete the Course Placement exam to measure reading, writing and mathematics. All students must then complete and pass Making the Cut, an orientation course designed to maximize your understanding of the Cosmetology program. During this orientation you will receive an introduction to the industry and an orientation to the program competencies. Space is limited and is available on a first come, first serve basis. Students who successfully complete Making the Cut will register for first semester courses to confirm their status as a Cosmetology student.

  • 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.
