Attendees who plan to apply for admission are encouraged to bring a copy of their high school or college transcripts and financial aid applications.

Participants will learn about MATC’s 200 academic programs and meet with faculty and staff. Representatives from MATC’s four campuses – Downtown Milwaukee, Mequon, Oak Creek and West Allis – will share details about campus-specific programs and activities. Staff from admissions, registration, financial aid, counseling, and student life will be on hand to answer questions and talk about student organizations and athletics. Representatives also will be available to discuss options for students interested in continuing to four-year colleges and universities after earning an MATC associate degree; GED, English as a Second Language and college preparation programs.

Applications for MATC’s spring semester are due by Dec. 15. High school students who want to enroll next fall should apply by Feb. 1 for the best opportunity to obtain financial aid, including the MATC Promise for New High School Grads. Prospective students interested in applying for the MATC Promise for Adults should apply by Dec. 7. The MATC Promise programs provide free college tuition and fees for eligible students.
