International Students - Welcome

Milwaukee Area Technical College welcomes international students. With four campuses to serve our students, MATC is the largest community-based technical college in Wisconsin. We offer 170 degree, diploma, certificate and apprenticeship programs leading to successful careers.

The International Student Admissions Office assists international students through the admissions process and continues to support international students throughout their stay in the United States. The office interacts with U.S. immigration bureaus overseen by the Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, foreign governments, NAFSA (Association of International Educators) and other national and internal agencies actively engaged in international education.

The links (in blue) below provide information for new and current international students at MATC.
