Undergraduate frequently asked questions
How do I settle the bill if I am not making full payment?
All students must complete and return the student Remittance Form by the due date. This form tells Norwich how your bill will be paid from the various sources and helps determine your financial clearance.
How do I make a payment?
If my student loans are more than my bill, do I get the difference?
Yes, once all the requested paperwork has been received and processed by the Norwich University Financial Planning Office your loans and aid will be disbursed. Refunds will only occur on those accounts that have a credit balance. Allow two to three weeks for processing the refund check once funds have been received on your account.
Can I pay my bill with Veteran’s benefits?
Post 9/11 Chapter 33 & Yellow Ribbon benefit
Students eligible for VA Chapter 33 Post 9/11 benefits and Yellow Ribbon must provide the Norwich University Registrar’s Office with a current VA Certificate of Eligibility. Chapter 33 VA funds are paid direct to Norwich so the cost of tuition and fees can be deferred; students with VA benefits less than 100% must pay the difference prior to the start of the semester.
Vocational Rehabilitation- Chapter 31
Students eligible for VA Vocational Rehabilitation benefits must provide each semester a copy of the VA form 1905 for certification and billing. Vocational Rehabilitation funds are paid direct to Norwich University.
VA Chapters 30, 35, 32, 1606, 1607
Students utilizing VA benefits (Chapter 30, 35, 1606, 1607, 32) or other third-party plans paid directly to the student do not qualify for bill deferment and are required to pay tuition and fees in full prior to each semester.
The Registrar’s Office will certify the enrollment for the VA after each semester begins.
Can I use work-study toward payment of my student account?
Work study is not applied to your student account as a direct credit, nor is work study deferred on your student bill.
Where and how do I apply for federal student loans?
The first step to applying for federal student loans is to complete the FAFSA(Free Application for Federal Student Aid). You can do this online at www.fafsa.ed.gov or request a paper application from our Student Financial Planning Office. You will also need our federal school code — 003692. It is very important that your FAFSA information reflect this school code. This will let the federal processing center know that you are requesting your information be made available to Norwich University.
