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.

Transfer Credits

All transcripts are reviewed to maximize transfer credit opportunities.

We recognize military or professional training, professional certifications, CLEP (College Level Examination Program) exams as well as previous college coursework as opportunities to transfer up to 90 credits toward an online bachelor's degree at Norwich. A minimum of 30 credits and a C letter grade for transfer courses is required for admission, with the exception of the Strategic Studies and Defense Analysis program, in which 60 credits minimum is required.

Order Your Military Transcripts

Students who have earned graduate-level credits at another educational intuition may be able to transfer up to 12 semester credits toward an online Norwich master’s program.
