Your residency is defined by Madison College as your official location of residence. Your residency can have an effect on your admission into a program of study as well as your tuition. You declare your residency when you complete an admission application or when you first create your student account.
Residency is usually determined by one of the following criteria:
- Filing a Wisconsin income tax return. If you are under 25 and claimed as a dependent by either parent, the residency information on your parents' state tax return applies to you.
- Eligibility to vote in the state.
- Motor vehicle registration.
- Issuing state and address on your driver's license.
- Location of employment.
To determine how residency impacts program admissions, review the Admission tab on your program web page. The Madison College district borders are defined by the Wisconsin Technical College System and are summarized in the WTCS College Boundaries and Campus Locations document. Residency requirements are described in detail in the state's Administrative Code Chapter TCS 10.
