Edgewood College is pleased to announce a growing partnership with Madison College, the second-largest institution in the Wisconsin Technical College System. New articulation agreements signed May 13, 2016 guarantee admission to Edgewood College for Madison College associate degree holders and allow honors students at Madison College admission to the honors program at Edgewood College after transferring.
“The agreements continue the rich tradition of partnering with institutions that share our commitment to student success in the classroom,” Dr. Jack Daniels, president of Madison College said. “That commitment focuses on academic rigor, experiential learning, and the development of critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and interpersonal skills.”
Under the transfer agreement, students who receive an associate of arts or sciences degree from Madison College will have fulfilled the Edgewood College general education requirements except the COR curriculum, world languages, and religious studies. The agreement covers students who apply within five years of degree completion from Madison College.
“These latest agreements serve as a reminder of the great work that remains to be done,” Dr. Scott Flanagan, president of Edgewood College said. “At a time when higher education is changing quickly, at a time when our community is changing quickly, we remain two institutions that have at their center providing outstanding educational experience for students and a commitment to meeting the needs of the greater Madison community. This is only the most recent partnership in our long-standing working relationship.”
The second agreement allows Madison College honors students, who meet certain criteria when transferring, guaranteed admission to the Edgewood College honors program. This agreement includes a renewable academic scholarship, priority registration, diploma recognition, and participation in special activities and excursions.
