Transfer Credits & Military Affiliations

Earn College Credit For Military Experience

Norwich takes pride in serving our military students through an expedited transfer credit policy for service members. We accept credit from regionally accredited institutions of higher learning, military training and our military affiliations and comply with VA regulations and guidelines as they pertain to transfer credits.

Additionally, use Norwich’s list in the Transfer Evaluation System to see if we have already evaluated your previous courses for equivalent credit at Norwich.  Just select your prior college or university and the courses you took, and if we have already evaluated that course, we will see the equivalent at Norwich. You can also create an account in Transferology. After you create an account, you will be able to quickly enter your previous coursework and see what credit you will get towards your degree at Norwich.
