After You Have Been Accepted

After you have been accepted and have confirmed your intention to enroll at Norwich, the Registrar’s Office will complete a credit evaluation to determine if and how your previously taken courses will transfer.

In general, credit is granted for courses that are:

  • taken at regionally accredited, degree-granting colleges and universities
  • comparable in content, nature, and intensity to course offerings in the corresponding discipline at Norwich
  • graded at a level of C or higher on an A-F scale. For Nursing majors, some courses require a grade of “C+” or better to transfer towards that major

NOTE: Courses with a grade of C- or below will not transfer. Grades of P (Pass) or S (Satisfactory) will be accepted only with official documentation verifying that they represent successful completion of a specific course at the level of C or higher.

Credit is generally not granted for courses that:

  • were taken at colleges and universities that are not regionally accredited (or are candidates for accreditation)*
  • are in disciplines that are not taught at Norwich
  • are pre-collegiate or remedial courses; e.g., reading improvement, English/math skills courses, developmental courses
  • appear on a transcript with no credit or grade assigned

Once your credit has been evaluated you will receive an email with information on how to view your Transfer Equivalency Worksheet.
