MATC is hands down the best technical school out there. It's very affordable; but you get your money's worth. The teachers/faculty actually care about us(the students) and take time out of their days to help with whatever we may need. I love the atmosphere of this college, it is very inviting and friendly. There are so many clubs/other extra curriculars to get involved in. At MATC they take education as well as the well being of their students very seriously, and find a fun way to educate us and involve us in our learning. I wouldn't even think of attending a different school. I will truly miss MATC once I transfer out. This is a great school in so many ways; I'm proud to be apart of it!

My experience at Madison College thus far has been phenomenal. Dipping my feet into everything has been made much easier, and definitely more affordable. Coming into Madison College I had no idea what I wanted to study (that's the reason for my choosing to come). I had heard about this 'phenomenal transfer program', and thought what a great idea! Trying to figure out what I want to do the rest of my life, and save on tuition. I can accomplish my generals and then transfer to a University to study the specifics. It's a win, win. I believe the Liberal Arts Transfer Program is one of the top contributors to the school's uniqueness. The transfer program gets a lot of attention, and turns a lot of heads.

Madison College's 'On Ramp' to a University – The fact that Madison College offers a Liberal Arts Transfer program is mind blowing. It saves new college students thousands of dollars towards tuition, and in today's economy that's a gift straight from the heavens. The transfer program works by allowing students to take all generals for a lot less, then when one accumulates enough course credits and maintains at least a GPA of 3.0 transferring is guaranteed. Talk about a superb transition!
