How do I connect my technical training at Meridian to college credit?
An A.A.S. degree is a great path for someone to follow who is planning on directly entering the workforce after earning the degree. Technical college courses are specific to the technical workforce degree and may not apply to other degrees designed to transfer to bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees.
Depending on your program, your Meridian coursework may connect to an associate of applied science degree (technical workforce degree) at participating colleges. Upon completing 15 credit hours at an institution, students should provide a Meridian transcript and/or certifications to their college advisor to be reviewed for possible college credit. College credit hours vary by college and Meridian programs.
Northern Oklahoma College NOC offers an associate of applied science degree in business management-entrepreneurship option where students take their general education and business courses at NOC and use any technical occupational coursework from Meridian to satisfy up to 15 hours of elective credits. This degree is designed for students who want to own their own business.
