As a new student to the college or to your program, there are different events offered throughout the year to help get you off to a smooth start at Madison College.

Advising & Registration


At Advising & Registration, you will meet with your academic advisors in a group setting, plan out your academic career, receive personalized assistance to enroll in classes and begin to meet students and instructors in your program of study. Some programs require mandatory Advising & Registration Sessions or program-specific orientations, so keep an eye on your personal email for more information. 

Invitations for students admitted for the fall semester are sent out starting in March; invitations for students admitted for the spring semester begin in October. Registration is required to attend Advising & Registration. Contact Enrollment Services if you need help signing up for a session.

Students admitted to a certificate program may register beginning on their assigned registration date and do not participate in Advising & Registration. If you need help with course selection please contact Advising Services
