Military & Veteran Education Benefits

Welcome Active Military, Guard and Reserve Service Members, Veterans and Your Families

Join a 200-Year Legacy of Military Leaders

At Norwich University, we know a thing or two about innovative education for service members. Founded in 1819 as the first private military college in the U.S., we have a legacy of over 200-years in providing a proven, career-ready education that's taught by expert faculty, many of whom are retired military personnel themselves and can deliver additional insights and understanding to course content and your experiences. 
It is our mission to provide exceptional service and accessibility to our military students. We are very aware of the unique challenges service members, Veterans and their families face, and we offer numerous support systems and benefits specifically for them.
All of our degree programs maintain our original focus of "thinking and doing" —  so you can graduate as a top candidate in the job market with strong hands-on experiences and the most relevant industry knowledge.

The participation in the international relations online program is my chance to contribute to the Corps while becoming a well-rounded international relations professional. I believe that the master’s degree will transform me into an even more effective international military operations planner and provide a broader strategic perspective in future assignments.

Bachelor of Science in Strategic Studies and Defense Analysis

Master of Science in Criminal Justice
I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing young men and women over the course of my enrollment – often those individuals I doubt I would have had the opportunity to work in other settings. The exchange of ideas and perspectives lead to some internal growth that I wasn’t expecting.
