Wisconsin Open Records Law follows FERPA requirements, which prohibit the release of non-directory data information and permit the release of directory data information. Wisconsin Open Records Law cannot compel the release of non-directory data. In general, Madison College must release student directory data under a public record request. Student information with a FERPA hold will not be released under a public record request.

  • Gainful Employment Report

    The Gainful Employment Report was designed by the U.S. Department of Education to protect students from taking on unsustainable debt so they have an easier time paying for career training. Madison College students can use this data to help make informed decisions about which program to apply to and to meet their potential for gainful employment after graduation. On August 13, 2019, Madison College elected to participate in the early implementation process eliminating the requirement to report Gainful Employment information and disclosures online and to students.

    Students are encouraged to use O*Net OnLine, which provides details about the workforce to job seekers, workforce development and human resources professionals, students and researchers.

  • Graduate Employment Report

    The 2022 Graduate Employment Report (Excel) provides information about the types of jobs Madison College students secure after graduation, based on the results of the annual Graduate Employment Survey. If you trouble accessing this report please contact

    The survey attempts to answer:

    • Are Madison College graduates successful in gaining employment related to their field of study?
    • How do graduates feel about the training they received at Madison College?
    • Where are graduates employed? When were they hired? How much do they earn?

    The Graduate Employment Report is useful to counselors, current and prospective Madison College students, and employers. It also provides valuable data for developing the college's programs and curriculum, and complies with state and federal reporting requirements.

    All program graduates are sent a survey six months after graduation and extensive efforts are made to maximize the response rate of the survey. Calculations of response rates and placement rates, opinions and salaries are based upon the responses provided by the program graduates.

    Graduate Employment Report data can also be found on our program web pages
