MATC works every day to make college accessible to more people for career advancement and life success. Why? Earning a degree can transform a person’s life. Did you know the average salary of an MATC associate degree graduate is now $40,710 per year? Also, today’s high-demand careers require advanced training and credentials. MATC is here to provide that support help students succeed!
In 2015, the MATC Promise was created, providing free college education (covering tuition and fees only) for area high school graduates who meet program eligibility requirements. The MATC Promise is helping high school graduates realize their dream of attending college and preparing for a career.
Now, MATC is piloting an expansion of the MATC Promise for adult learners. Through “Commit to Complete,” MATC is offering grants to cover all tuition and fees for eligible students who started college, but never completed their degree.
This pilot launch is available only for people who live OR work in the 53206 ZIP code. We need your help in getting the word out about this and other opportunities that can lead to career advancement and transformation.

Thank you for your partnership to transform lives, industry and community together.
