International & Exchange - Steps and Resources
1. Complete your Application to Norwich.
2. Secondary school (high school) transcripts and evaluation. (If the transcript is not in English, the applicant must also submit a translated copy.) SpanTran has created a custom application for Norwich students that will make sure you select the right kind of evaluation at a discounted rate ($150 for the evaluation). You can access their application by clicking here.
3. English Proficiency:
- If you have successfully completed an academic English program at an institution approved by Norwich University's International Center.
- If you have graduated, or are on track to graduate, from a foreign institution where the language of instruction for the secondary and/or post-secondary degree(s) is English.
- If you have graduated, or are on track to graduate, from a US accredited school abroad with English as the medium of instruction.
- If you have graduated, or are on track to graduate, from a secondary school in the US that you attended for a minimum of one year that included at least one unit of college preparatory English.
- If you have earned a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution of higher education in the US or have completed at least 12 or more credits at an accredited institution of higher education in the US.
4. You are also encouraged to submit (Not Required): Letters of Recommendation: two or three letters are preferred. Please should choose teachers, coaches, employers, mentors, etc., who know both your academic abilities and personality.
Essay: 300-500 word open-topic essay may also be submitted.
SAT or ACT Scores (Norwich’s SAT Code is 3669; ACT code is 4308).
If you are applying for the nursing degree, you must provide SAT or ACT scores. You may submit scores for all other majors, though they are not required to. Norwich “super-scores” each test, and records only the best scores that you have received.
International students who want to transfer to Norwich University as a second- or third-year student or have taken 12 or more college-level credits either in the U.S. or abroad, should also refer to the transfer admission information.
If you have attended an institution outside of the US, you will be required to submit evaluations of your high school degree and college (university) transcripts at the time of application. SpanTran has created a custom application for Norwich students that will make sure you select the right kind of evaluation at a discounted rate ($150 for the evaluation). You can access their application by clicking here (SpanTran Application). Your college-level courses will be evaluated for acceptable transfer credit toward Norwich degree completion. If you have attended a US institution, please submit your college transcript and a copy of your high school degree or transcript. Your college-level courses will be evaluated for acceptable transfer credit toward Norwich degree completion.
Please be aware that Norwich University cannon offer academic, institutional, or need-based financial aid to international students.
Our International Admissions Counselor is here to help you in obtaining an F-1 Student Visa. The F-1 Student Visa (Academic Student) allows you to enter the United States as a full-time student at an accredited college, university, seminary, conservatory, academic high school, elementary school, or other academic institution or in a language training program. You must be enrolled in a program or course of study that culminates in a degree, diploma, or certificate and your school must be authorized by the U.S. government to accept international students.
Once accepted into Norwich, your International Admissions Counselor will guide you through this process. Of course, you can contact them ahead of time with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contact our International Center for additional immigration and visa information.
