Advising & Registration

As a new student to the college or your program, there are different resources offered to help get you off to a smooth start at Madison College.

Our Virtual Advising & Registration (VAR) is online and highly recommended for all newly admitted program students. It will provide timely information that will prepare you to register for your first semester courses.

If at any point along the way you need help or have questions, contact Enrollment Services or click the "Chat with Us" button during business hours to chat with a college staff member.
