For high school concurrent enrollment, students from the Agra, Carney, Glencoe, Guthrie, Morrison, Mulhall-Orlando, Pawnee, Perkins-Tryon, Perry and Stillwater school districts can attend either a morning or afternoon session during their junior and senior years. Classes held during the morning session are from 7:50 – 10:40 and the afternoon classes are from 12:45 – 3:35. Sophomores can enroll in afternoon programs when space is available. The Meridian STEM Academy programs (Biomedical Sciences and Pre-Engineering) are open to sophomores, juniors and seniors.
Depending on your high school, students may earn 3 or 4 credits per year. Some of these credits count as electives, some count as academic credits. Your high school counselor can tell you more.

The Enrollment Timeline
Seeing is believing at Meridian! We’ve seen the light come on for students when they realize that coming to Tech gives them a hands-on way to apply much of what they’ve learned in high school. We have several opportunities throughout the year to share what we do with your students.
October, November and December: Meridian Counselors visit with high school students to talk to them about Tech. Students will learn about the programs Meridian offers and upcoming opportunities to visit campus.
January: District sophomores tour campus during the school day for Meridian’s Sophomore Showcase. Students and their parents are invited back for an evening Open House that is held later in the month. During the Open House, teachers and current students will be in the classroom to talk to students about the program, share projects they’ve worked on and answer any questions students or parents have about the program or coming to Tech.
February: Priority application deadline is February 1.
Late March: Admissions decisions are made and letters sent to students. Students will find out if they have been accepted into a program, put on a waiting list or not admitted to Meridian.
April: Students and their families complete the final step of their enrollment at Tech during Meridian’s Signing Day event. Students will be asked to sign a Letter of Intent regarding their acceptance into a program at Tech.
