Applying for Norwich Programs from Across the Globe
Through Norwich University’s online learning platform, students from around the world can participate in our graduate and continuing education programs regardless of their location, time zone, or schedule. To apply to a Norwich online program, international students must complete a special set of admissions requirements in addition to their program-specific admissions requirements.
The international student requirements for Norwich admission are as follows:
- Speak with an admissions advisor. This will give you an opportunity to ask questions about Norwich and the program in which you are interested. This interview will also help determine if you have the necessary credentials to enroll in your chosen program. Your advisor will also outline the steps required to complete your application package.
- Complete the application. You can complete the application form with your enrollment advisor. There is a $50 non-refundable application fee, which must be paid in U.S. dollars.
- Submit an English proficiency assessment. If English is not your first language, proof of English language proficiency is required. This can be demonstrated in one of three ways:
- TOEFL - a minimum score of 550 (paper-based test) or 80 (Internet-based test) is required.*
- IELTS – a minimum composite score of 6.5 is required.*
- The applicant holds a baccalaureate or master’s degree from a college/university/institution in which the primary language of instruction was English.
*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 B or better in order to meet the proficiency requirement. Program Directors will consider these options on a case by case basis.
Official scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) must be sent directly to Norwich by the Educational Testing Service. A minimum score may be required for your program. Students who need to take the test should contact TOEFL, Educational Testing Service, Box 6151, Princeton, NJ 08541-6151, USA.
The Norwich University TOEFL school code is 3669.
- Submit official school documentation. You must submit a course-by-course evaluation of official transcripts for all non-U.S. post-secondary institutions contributing to your degree (including any credits given for military service or training). These documents should be sent to Norwich directly from one of the four evaluation services listed below. You must submit the transcripts where you earned your degree, as well as any additional transcripts with credits transferred into the final school from which the degree was earned. While final transcript listings include transferred credits, evaluation services require the original documentation for these credits (AACRAO accepts photocopies). If the transcripts are not in English, a translation must be provided. Evaluation must be presented in a course-by-course manner rather than a document-by-document manner.
