Learning Formats

Meridian offers its programs in two formats: Onsite and Online. These two learning formats support the transformative learning intent of the curriculum while providing students the flexibility to choose between either full-time or part-time enrollment as well as either online or onsite classes.

Onsite Format

In the onsite learning format, classes are held in-person with coursework including an online component. Students who choose the onsite learning format meet in residence for one weekend per month during the Fall and Spring quarters (Fridays through Sundays, for six weekends per year). Additionally, students meet for one-week sessions during each of the Winter and Summer quarters. 

Online Format

In the online learning format, students can combine online courses, video-conferencing, and residential sessions as appropriate based on their individual circumstances, location, degree program, and program concentration.

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 with all cohort members in between the two week-long in-person class meetings; 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.

Faculty respond to students’ work (weekly modules, projects, or doctoral project submittals) within two to 30 working days, depending on the nature of the assignment.

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.
