MATC Promise for New High School Graduates

The MPS College and Career Centers are here to help students with the MATC Promise program application process. To get started, apply, and learn more, please visit MATC Promise. Students must complete both the MATC application and the MATC Promise application. If you are interested and need help, please visit your nearest MPS CACC!

What is the MATC Promise for New High School Graduates?

The MATC Promise was the first program of its kind in Wisconsin, providing free tuition for eligible students. The MATC Promise is helping to make college an option for students who never thought it was possible. This public/private “last dollar” partnership covers tuition and fees for program courses, after other grants and scholarships are applied, for up to 75 credits. Students may be responsible for other fees and for the cost of books.*
