MATC Launches Promise Program for Adults
In May 2018, Milwaukee Area Technical College officially launched the MATC Promise for Adults, offering free tuition for eligible students to finish their associate degrees at MATC. The new program is an expansion of MATC’s first-in-the-state Promise program, which assists new high school graduates. Announced in 2015, the high school Promise program has the same goal – ensuring college access to students who never thought they could afford it.
The MATC Promise for Adults covers tuition costs after scholarships and grants for up to 75 credits for eligible individuals. Students must be:
● 24 years or older and live in the MATC district
● Have an annual family income of $56,000 or less (based on federal student aid application)
● Have earned at least six college credits but have not earned an associate or bachelor’s degree
● Have been out of college for at least two years
Help spread the word about this opportunity to adults who would benefit from this exciting opportunity!
The MATC Promise for Adults and the MATC Promise for New High School Graduates receive funds from private donations made to the MATC Foundation. To make a contribution to the MATC Promise, visit matc.edu/support_matc
