Enrollment Process

Step 1: Request Information

We’d love to tell you more about Meristem. To find out more about our program and about enrollment, please contact our Admissions Department at (916) 963-1000 or via email at info@meristem.pro.

Step 2: Visit Our Campus

Get to know us and experience Meristem firsthand on a campus tour. Tours typically occur Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM, and take approximately 90 minutes.

Step 3: Complete Our Application

When you are ready to apply, a link to our online application will be sent via email from our Admissions Department. There is a one-time Application Fee of $250.

Before you begin the application process, it is helpful to have any additional documents ready for upload. These may include any of the following, or other documentation or testing that would help us get to know the applicant’s background and goals. These are not required, but are helpful to our team.

  • Individualized Education Program (IEP)
  • Neuropsychological Evaluation
  • Psychoeducational Evaluation
  • Progress Report from previous program

Step 4: Pre-Enrollment Visit

Once your application has been reviewed, the applicant will be scheduled for a 3-day/2-night Pre-Enrollment Visit (PEV). During a PEV, the applicant will participate in a schedule of classes, and spend the night on campus in a single-occupancy dorm room. There is a one-time Pre-Enrollment Visit Fee of $650.

If you are a California resident, you may qualify to become a client of a Regional Center in your county. Please contact Meristem’s Director of Finance to find out about the ‘Purchase of Services’ process for regional center clients.

Step 5: Enrollment Offer

After the Pre-Enrollment Visit has been completed, our staff and the prospective student will share feedback and reflect on the visit experience. If Meristem and the student are a match, enrollment will be offered immediately following this review, and the student may begin attending Meristem as soon as possible.
