Learning Format

All of Meridian's degree programs are offered in a hybrid format. Each quarter, students take one or multiple seven week online courses. This adds up to 28 weeks a year -- just about half the year that courses are actively running. This gives students a break between quarters to rest and prepare. In addition, students are expected to attend two weeklong residencies per year. Residencies run Monday through Friday, with collaborative engagement facilitated each evening.

Online Coursework

Online coursework is primarily conducted asynchronously, providing students the opportunity to participate in collaborative learning with faculty and fellow students during times that are convenient for personal schedules. Faculty do encourage their online classes to meet synchronously (virtually, but in real-time), so as to have real-time contact outside of residencies; however, while real-time attendance is encouraged, it is not required. At times students are asked to meet in virtual small groups at mutually convenient times. Meridian faculty and staff collaborate to provide an online learning experience for students that invites new and unexpected meanings to emerge.

Accreditation and Financial Aid

Meridian is a degree-granting higher education institution accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission and approved by the State of California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.

Meridian is approved by the U.S. Department of Education for participation in the Federal Student Aid programs.
