Students enroll in either a morning or afternoon session at Tech. Classes held during the morning session are from 7:50 – 10:40 and the afternoon classes are from 12:45 – 3:35. Adults attending Meridian have options. They can attend in the morning or afternoon session or they can make the most of their time and take classes in both sessions, shortening their time at Tech. Financial aid is available for those who qualify. Depending on the high school, students may earn 3 or 4 credits per year. Some of these credits count as electives, some count as academic credits. Students should check with their high school counselor to learn how credits from Tech are counted.
February 1 is the priority enrollment date for high school students. Applications are accepted after this date, depending on program availability. Adult-only programs may have specific applications and enrollment processes. Call 405.377.3333 and visit with a Career Counselor to learn more about adult enrollment.
