Golden Eagle Advantage Transfer Pathway

The Golden Eagle Advantage is a transfer pathway for Messmer High School graduates to earn a Marquette University degree. Messmer 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.

The Advantage

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.

  • Cost savings
  • Support

With the help of our transfer advisor, students can transfer up to half of their MU degree from MATC, shaving off two whole years at Marquette. Typically, you will only have two years remaining at Marquette University. Participants will also be considered for scholarship and financial aid!

To ensure your success at MATC and a seamless transfer to Marquette, you will be assigned a Transfer Admissions Counselor from Marquette to help you in the transfer process. A Marquette Transfer Admissions Counselor will also be available on MATC's Downtown Campus periodically throughout the fall and spring semesters!

Get Started

By completing the participation form, you are submitting your interest in joining the Golden Eagle Advantage program. The participation form is not binding. Messmer students have until May 1 of their senior year to decide if the Golden Eagle Advantage is best option for their future.
