Regional Students

Madison College is local, and our regional campuses offer you convenient and affordable opportunities to further your education while staying close to home.

Join us for an upcoming open house at the Reedsburg, Portage, Watertown or Fort Atkinson campus. 

Why Local is Better

  • Fort Atkinson

    The Fort Atkinson Campus has given me a great experience. As a Middle College student, I’ve been able to have a head start on college. The support staff goes out of its way. I love the environment and will always remember the good people I’ve met.
    ~ Drake, Fort Atkinson Campus student

    Leading-edge technology is alive and well in Fort Atkinson, especially in advanced manufacturing. Welding and machine fabrication students work with local businesses. Nursing students gain skills in a health simulation center before interning at local health care sites.

    It's hard to miss the 155-foot-tall, 100-kilowatt wind turbine that produces 80 percent of the Fort Atkinson campus's electrical needs and gives students the chance to learn about wind and renewable energy. 

    Credentials offered at the Fort Atkinson Campus include associate degrees, technical diplomas, certificates, high school equivalency degrees, professional development opportunities and the liberal arts transfer program.

  • Portage

    I’m doing well in my classes, thanks to the support of my advisors and instructors. It was intimidating to come back to school as an adult. But I’ve done well in my liberal arts classes and plan to study nursing. The Portage Campus feels like home to me, and the modern facilities help connect me to the rest of the Madison College community. 
    ~ Lorelei, Portage Campus student

    At the Portage Campus, you can earn an associate degree, a technical diploma, a certificate, a high school equivalency degree or a liberal arts transfer degree.

    Updated science facilities offer students a more impactful classroom experience than ever before and you can connect with MATC students across campuses in telepresence classrooms.

    Manufacturing programs are popular among Portage students because the city provides space and entrepreneurial help to tech-focused start-up businesses. As a Madison College student, you'll gain hands-on experience in advanced manufacturing–an asset employers are seeking.

  • Reedsburg

    From tutoring to career planning, the Reedsburg Campus has helped me. I’ve learned study skills and have become a stronger reader. I look back with pride at the classes I’ve taken. It’s also close to home, which saves me money and time.
    ~ Lisa, Reedsburg Campus student

    Enter the Madison College Reedsburg Campus, and you'll see students working together in a student lounge or being tutored in the Student Achievement Center. While nursing attracts the most students, you'll also find business-related programs, liberal arts transfer courses and more.

    The campus boasts a 3,500-square-foot "hoop house" -- a greenhouse distinguished by its shape and designed for continuing education courses in growing food and flowers. 

    The Reedsburg Campus can help you reach educational and career goals with courses designed to fit your needs.

  • Watertown

    I’ve thrived at Madison College. I was nervous about starting school again, but it turns out the average student age at the regional campuses is 34. With help from my teachers and tutors, I’m out of my comfort zone and on the Dean’s List!
    ~ Michele, Watertown Campus student

    The Watertown Campus offers a wide variety of courses. Specialties include such degree programs as administrative professional, electronics, finance and supervisory management. Technical training opportunities in wind/renewable energy and healthcare are available too. 

    Many students at Madison College Watertown work in areas like health care, business and renewable energy while going to school. Our hospital simulation and manufacturing labs provide solid job training to these students.
