The MATC Promise for Adults. It’s the alternative to paying college tuition.

You started college. Now finish up tuition-FREE. The MATC Promise gives eligible adults with some college the opportunity to retrain, retool and finish their degree — tuition-FREE.

Are You a New High School Graduate?

75 credits tuition-free. Zero excuses not to finish your degree.

The MATC Promise provides eligible adults up to 75 credits of free tuition – after other scholarships and grants are applied – to complete an in-demand associate degree. So, if you’ve been putting off going back to college, now’s the time to put your degree back on track.

Go back to a school that’s got your back.

Maybe you didn’t finish college last time. But maybe your college didn’t give you the support you needed. The MATC Promise provides you with the help — advisors, career counselors, and more—to stay on track to graduate and connect to a career.

Proud to be
Milwaukee’s Alternative.

High-quality education, low-cost tuition, small classes.

Oh yeah, we’re the alternative to the way Milwaukee goes to —
and pays for —  college.
