Bachelor's and Certificate Admissions
Norwich welcomes goal-oriented military personnel who share our passion for public service and are committed to furthering their field and contributing positively to their community. The following eligibility requirements are intended to ensure that those admitted to the program will be able to take full advantage of Norwich’s rigorous academic environment. Applicants not meeting these requirements will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
*Prospective students who have completed military or professional training that has not been ACE reviewed may petition the Chair of Continuing Studies to have their training reviewed and assessed for transfer credit.
**Prospective students who have not achieved these scores or higher may have additional options to demonstrate English language proficiency. One of these options may include, but is not limited to, taking a standard English composition course at Norwich University, or select institutions, and achieving a score of C or better in order to meet the proficiency requirement. Please talk to your admissions advisor for more information.
Please Note: All eligibility requirements are expected to be met unless noted in specific articulation agreements or memoranda of understanding (MOUs).
