MATC Now Accepting Applications for 'Promise Program' which Provides Free Education for Eligible High School Graduates

MILWAUKEE - MATC is now taking applications from members of the Class of 2018 for their Promise Program.

The Promise Program provides free college education for area high school graduates who meet program eligibility requirements. 

The MATC Promise Program will pay the tuition and fees, after federal and state financial grant aid has been applied, for eligible students for five consecutive semesters (up to 15 credits each semester.) While enrolled at MATC, students will need to maintain full-time status (12 or more credits), and a 2.0 GPA, and participate in service learning projects and academic success and career planning workshops.

“The response to the MATC Promise from prospective students and their parents/guardians, our K-12 education partners, business leaders, elected officials, community members and donors has been incredibly positive,” said MATC President Vicki Martin. “Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have the necessary funds to support another cohort of Promise students.”
