Dual Enrollment & Early College Programs


The Dual Enrollment Program at Norwich University

High school juniors and seniors, who are residents of the State of Vermont and from a publicly funded high school, are eligible for up to two vouchers for college courses. Students must apply for a voucher for the semester they wish to enroll in a dual enrollment course. Students who attend an independent high school and are not tuitioned by their home district are not eligible for a voucher.

The college credits dual enrolled students earn are part of their permanent NU transcript, and these courses begin to satisfy degree requirements toward a Norwich degree. These credits are transferrable to most colleges.


The Early College Program at Norwich University

The Early College Program at NU allows up to 18 Vermont high school seniors, from publicly funded high schools, to enroll full-time at NU. Students who attend an independent high school and are not tuitioned by their home district are not eligible for the ECP.

This early admission program allows ECP students to complete high school diploma requirements while taking a full year of college classes in any discipline. The college credits ECP students earn are part of their permanent NU transcript, and these courses begin to satisfy degree requirements toward a Norwich degree. These credits are transferrable to most colleges.
