Tech Admissions Timeline
Have you already decided that attending Tech is what you want to do? Here’s how to get started!
- Complete an application and any additional required documents for your chosen program.
- Get your parent or legal guardian’s signature if you’re under 18.
- Turn your application in to your high school counselor.
Meridian will contact your school to get your transcript, attendance records and assessment results to assist in the admissions process.
Priority enrollment is February 1. Applications will be accepted after this date as long as space is available.
As part of the application process, you will interview with a member of Meridian’s Career Counseling team. This is an opportunity for team members to learn more about you, your career goals, your academic background and other things you’re involved in at your high school. Don’t let the term interview scare you – this really is an opportunity for you to shine!
Home School/Virtual/Private School Students:
Home school, private school and virtual school students who live in the Meridian district can attend Tech too! The admissions process is similar to students in Meridian’s district high schools, but we’ll need a little extra information from you:

WHAT IF YOU DON’T ATTEND A PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL?
