Advising & Registration

Are you brand new to Madison College (or newly admitted to a program)? Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here.

Attend an Advising & Registration (AR) session to enroll in your first semester classes. You’ll also become familiar with the technology you’ll use as a student. Attendance is highly recommended for all newly admitted program students and attending an in-person session is mandatory for some programs. If you're admitted for the Fall semester, you can expect to receive your invitation starting in April. If you're admitted for the Spring semester, you can expect to receive your invitation starting in November.

See below for your steps to complete the Advising & Registration process. 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.
 

Advising & Registration Session Checklist

Follow the steps below to be best prepared for your Advising & Registration session!

  1. Register for an AR Session

    Monitor the personal email you provided when applying for admission to your program. When AR sessions open, you will receive an email invitation to register for a session. *If you do not receive an email, please check your junk, spam, and promotions folder.

    If you're admitted for the Fall semester, you can expect to receive your invitation starting in April. If you're admitted for the Spring semester, you can expect to receive your invitation starting in November.

  2. Complete your Advising Worksheet

    Before attending an AR session, you must complete the questions at the top of your Advising Worksheet in order to receive accurate first semester course recommendations.

    Find your Advising Worksheet:

    • Log in to your myMadisonCollege Portal
    • Click the Communications tile
    • In your To Do List, click “Advising Worksheet”
  3. Attend your AR Session

    In-person session (highly recommended): In-person sessions are provided frequently to meet your schedule’s needs. You’ll be able to meet with an Academic Advisor and receive hands-on assistance to enroll in you classes, connect with Financial Aid to get your questions answered, and obtain your student ID card.

    Online session: If your program doesn't require in-person session attendance and you are unable to attend an in-person session, you can select an online session. An email will be sent to you with a link to a video presentation that contains enrollment-related information to help you get started. Once you complete the session, refer to the contact information provided in the presentation if you need assistance completing course selection or enrolling in classes.

  4. Attend WolfPack Welcome

    After attending Advising & Registration, you will be invited to attend Wolfpack Welcome. This college-wide orientation prepares you for the beginning of your college experience at Madison College. All new students are expected to attend and family members are more than welcome!
