Norwich reviews applicants based on the following criteria, in order of importance:

Academic preparedness

We evaluate your application according to the major you plan to pursue. Norwich looks at your high-school transcript to make sure you are prepared for the rigors of the program. An ideal applicant will have completed the following:

  • Four years of English
  • Four years of math
  • Three to four years of laboratory science
  • Three years of social science
  • Two years of foreign language

Résumé (optional)

It is advised, but not mandatory, to submit a résumé. Tell us about your activities, sports, volunteer work and leadership positions. We look for students who are motivated, value service to others and show initiative.

Admissions essay (optional)

An essay strengthens your application. It should be short—one page is ideal. We recommend you use this essay to highlight something we don’t know about you.

Letters of recommendation (optional)

Letters from teachers, coaches, counselors, JROTC instructors or employers are optional but strongly recommended. Two is an ideal number.

SAT Scores (optional)

No academic programs except nursing require SAT or ACT exam submissions. 

Update: due to COVID-19’s effect on the availability of standardized-testing, Norwich University will be waiving the requirement for SAT or ACT exams for students applying to our undergraduate Nursing program for fall 2021 admission.

Mission Statement:

To give our youth an education that shall be American in character—to enable them to act as well as to think—to execute as well as to conceive—“to tolerate all opinions when reason is left free to combat them”—to make moral, patriotic, efficient, and useful citizens, and to qualify them for all those high responsibilities resting upon a citizen of this free republic.

School History:

For 200 years, Norwich University's guiding values and mission have helped create an atmosphere of excellence. We are the nation's oldest private military college and the birthplace of ROTC, serving a diverse student body that reflects the world today.

Two thirds of our residential students join our Corps of Cadets, challenging themselves physically, mentally, and morally to excel as leaders in a structured military-style environment.

We also serve civilian residential and commuter students and a large online graduate and continuing-education student body.

Norwich faculty and staff challenge all of our students to push themselves academically, socially, and as leaders. Our graduates build upon their Norwich educations to launch or grow careers and make outsized contributions to their communities, the nation, and the world.
