Norwich University and the National Security Agency’s National Cryptologic School have partnered to create pathways into Norwich’s online bachelor’s degree programs, master’s degree programs, graduate-level certificate programs, and Norwich Pro’s continuing professional education programs.

This partnership, which continues Norwich’s long legacy of supporting the national security sector, provides flexibility and convenience to help some of the nation’s brightest minds pursue educational goals. National Cryptologic School students using military tuition assistance receive a tuition discount of $250 per credit toward an online bachelor’s degree program. All National Cryptologic School students receive a 15% discount toward an online master’s degree program or graduate-level certificate, or a 35% discount toward Norwich Pro’s continuing professional education certificate programs.

“We are proud to partner with the National Cryptologic School in providing the full range of our exceptional educational offerings to our nation’s leaders and protectors, affording them the opportunity to continue a path of educational and professional success,” President Mark Anarumo said.

National Cryptologic School-sponsored training and education have been evaluated for credit in Norwich University’s online bachelor’s degree completion programs.

Programs of interest for National Cryptologic School students include the online bachelor’s and master’s in criminal justice and cybersecurity degree programs. Norwich’s online programs are structured to build on students’ current knowledge and competencies and help them develop career-furthering skills in leadership, research and analysis.

“This articulation agreement provides additional avenues for the NSA workforce to continue their education, while decreasing the time it takes for them to complete their degree,” National Cryptologic School's Deputy Commandant and Provost Dr. Mark Asselin said. “NSA's National Cryptologic School is proud to partner with Norwich University to continue to offer our workforce additional opportunities for educational development.”

The National Cryptologic School, a school within the National Security Agency that provides national security education and training, has more than 20 campuses, four cryptologic centers and six cryptologic training schools. Offerings include classes in language, cryptology, leadership, education and business expertise.
