Application Requirements & Deadlines

Application Requirements


  • Norwich University Application. Please use your name as it appears on a passport.
  • Official transcripts of previous academic work: Applicants must have completed 12 years of education prior to enrollment. If a transcript is not in English, it must include a translation and explanation of the grading system.
  • English proficiency test: These include the TOEFL (minimum of 500 paper version, 61¬†online version), IELTS (minimum score of 6.0)


  • Standardized tests: ACT or SAT (NOTE: International students who submit SAT or ACT scores will be considered for merit-based scholarships if accepted. ACT or SAT are required if you graduated from a U.S. high school.)
  • Personal essays and letters of recommendation.

Transfer Students

If you have taken 12 or more college level credits either in the U.S. or abroad, you are considered a Transfer Applicant. Please submit the above material and a copy of your high school degree or transcript. Your college level courses will be evaluated for acceptable transfer credit towards Norwich degree completion. English-language courses are not transferable, as they are not offered at university-level in the U.S.


Norwich has a rolling deadline for admissions. While you can be accepted up until the semester begins, in order to process the required visa documents to facilitate your entry to the US in F-1 or J-1 visa status, and to allow sufficient time for you to secure the required visa from the US Embassy/Consulate, we require all application materials, including visa related documentation by the following dates:

  • For Fall Admissions: July 1
  • For Spring Admissions: November 1

If you cannot meet these deadlines, please contact the International Center as soon as possible.
