The Avenue Advantage is a transfer pathway for Marquette University High School graduates to earn a Marquette University degree. MUHS graduates first enroll at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) and complete recommended transferrable coursework prior to transferring to Marquette University to complete their bachelor’s degree.
Upon completion of your Marquette degree, you will join the many thousands of proud MU alumni around the globe! The only difference is the path you took. The advantages of this path are clear.
You are Marquette! MUHS and MU share a common mission and rich history which means that Avenue Advantage participants are part of the Marquette family from the start. While at MATC students will be able to use all the services MATC provides, and participants will also receive a Marquette ID, access to the MU libraries, opportunities to participate in clubs and sports, and exclusive invitations to Marquette events like basketball games and on-campus speakers.
Eligible students may enroll in the MATC Promise, which allows students to complete transferable courses at MATC with no financial cost. With the help of our transfer advisor, students typically can earn a MU degree while spending only their final two years at Marquette University.
To ensure your success at MATC and a seamless transfer to Marquette, you will be assigned a peer mentor and have two academic advisors, one at MATC and one at Marquette. You will be well taken care of! Your peer mentor, who is a student that will have gone through the same process you're going through, will assist you as you transition to the college environment, navigate course registration, and learn the tips and tricks of being a college student.
Marquette offers guaranteed admission to qualified MATC students. By participating in the Avenue Advantage and satisfying the terms of our guaranteed admission pathway, there is no reason to worry about your future at Marquette!
By completing the participation form, you are submitting your interest in joining the Avenue Advantage program. The participation form is not binding. MUHS Students have until May 1 of their senior year to decide if the Avenue Advantage is best option for their future.
