Feel like you missed the boat enrolling in college this fall? Great news! It’s not too late to enroll in a Milwaukee Area Technical College this semester. MATC offers many twelve- and eight-week courses in a variety of programs beginning later in September and October.
These classes offer the same level of instruction as traditional 16-week courses, but in a compressed format, allowing students to achieve their educational goals more quickly.
MATC is working to offer a greater number of shorter-term courses in the future, with a goal of delivering 60 percent in eight- and twelve-week formats by 2024.
Not an MATC student? Start at matc.edu/apply. Already an MATC student? Visit matc.edu/register. Both pages have a link to search available classes. Search for twelve-week courses by entering Sept. 19 as a starting date and discover eight-week courses by entering a start date of Oct. 17.
