A Head Start on College

Knock off a few required college classes in English, art or sociology over the summer at MATC’s Mequon Campus. Save money, earn college credit and make your parents (and bank account) happy! 

Take a transferable college class (English, art or sociology) with an experienced, credentialed instructor and get more one-on-one attention — and a lower cost — at MATC.

A four-year college parallel course at MATC costs around $650 in tuition and fees.

Compare that to around $2,000 at a four-year public university or more than $3,000 at a private university.
