Lakeland University and Milwaukee Area Technical College have formed an innovative partnership that provides a unique higher-education option to MATC students. Students who have completed their associate degree at MATC continue their education at Lakeland by entering as a college junior to complete any bachelors degree; related or new!
Transferring to Lakeland University was an easy transition. The best part of my Lakeland experience has been the people I’ve met along my journey.
Milwaukee Area Technical College students can now pursue a Lakeland University bachelor's degree at all four MATC campuses through MATC’s Center for University Partnerships and Studies. This innovative new educational access program will offer discounted Lakeland tuition and convenience for MATC graduates.
The program is open to current and prospective MATC students as well as recent graduates, and offers part- and full-time options to continue on to five Lakeland bachelor’s degrees: accounting, business administration, criminal justice, graphic design and nursing. Coursework for these programs will be offered at all four MATC locations.
Lakeland University and Milwaukee Area Technical College have created a new partnership that will expand MATC's Promise program and provide a pathway to a Bachelor's Degree at Lakeland!

For many graduates, the scholarship will cover all tuition (after federal and state financial grant aid has been applied).
Classes will be available to Promise program students during the daytime, evenings and online. Courses will be available at Lakeland's Milwaukee Center at 9000 W. Chester St. and, in the future, at MATC.
Lakeland will provide individual academic advising and career readiness, including participation in the university's Cooperative Education program.

Students must meet the Federal Student Eligibility criteria as defined by the FAFSA. (various check with homeland security, social security, selective services, etc)
Partial Tuition Scholarship:
MATC Promise and Promise eligible students who do not meet the financial criteria in Item 2 above will still be eligible for significant scholarship assistance and participation in the Cooperative Education program (co-op). Many students will be able to defray all tuition through the scholarship and co-op program.
