To be eligible to apply, students must be on track to graduate and eligible for half-days during their senior year (this includes students with disabilities and English language learners). UWM and MATC have a soft recommendation of a 2.75 GPA. All applications are reviewed by an M3 (m-cubed) committee, and applicants must be approved by a school counselor to participate in the program.
All students will receive weighted grades that count toward their high school transcript and GPA. Additionally, each student will receive grades that go on a permanent college transcript at both MATC and UWM. Each student enrolled will be starting their first semester of college. No grade adjustments or removal of courses from transcripts will be allowed.
The students will graduate from their home high school. Students participating in the program will remain attached to their home high school. Their enrollment, GPA, attendance, graduation, etc., will still be factored into the home high school’s overall data. Their transcripts and other student records will remain attached to the home high school.
There is no cost to the students, families, or home high school for this program. Tutition, books, and fees are paid for.
All classes will be held at the downtown MATC and UWM campuses.
Students in the program will receive an M-Card from MATC for free transportation on Milwaukee County Transit for the year. If students choose to drive to either campus, they are responsible for paying for parking. Students will be eligible for student parking rates at MATC. Parking at UWM is meter only, or students may use the park and ride.
