Let Norwich help you earn your college degree as efficiently and affordably as possible

At Norwich, you can receive credit for your military experience and education, prior learning, workplace learning, professional courses and industry certification, and more.

We recommend you speak with one of our admission specialists for a preliminary evaluation of your transfer credits before you apply. After you apply, we'll do an official transfer credit evaluation. If you're an active-duty servicemember or veteran, you should request your military transcripts after applying to be sure you get the credit you deserve.

Benefits of Earning College Credits for Military Training

If you've considered earning your bachelor's or master's degree and are currently on active duty or have served in the military, earning transfer credits for your service can make that goal more easily attainable. Some of the most notable benefits of earning transfer credits for your training and experience include:

  • Time savings—Getting a head start will allow you to complete your degree quickly.
  • Increased flexibility—Applying transfer credits to required courses affords you extra time to take classes that interest you and align with your career goals.
  • Cost savings—Transfer credits will allow you to take fewer courses, resulting in cost savings for tuition, fees, and supplies.

Plus, it just makes sense. You've already put in the work—you should be rewarded for it
