All materials must be submitted by the application deadline.

1. Admission Application
 

International students who wish to apply for, maintain, or transfer their F-1 student visa status to Madison College are required to complete the International Admission Process.

2. Education Completion
Graduation from high school, completion of GED/HSED/GED02, or completion of an associate degree or higher is required; submit official transcripts for one of the following:

  • High school or charter school transcript (current high school seniors may submit an in-progress transcript) or GED02 transcript
  • GED/HSED score report
  • College transcript showing an associate degree or higher

Note: Applicants must work with an occupational advisor from business/industry and a Madison College advisor to develop a portfolio that identifies the applicant’s career goals and program outcomes. The proposed program of study must then be reviewed and approved by an ad hoc Individualized Technical Studies Degree Committee composed of deans and faculty from the related areas as well as an academic advisor. For assistance with the development of your portfolio, please contact cpaacall@madisoncollege.edu.
