“I Will Try”
Arguably Best School Motto
Washington Post

As a civilian, you’ll find impressive job opportunities through our career center and alumni connections with the CIA, FBI, and NSA, as well as numerous CEO’s, and entrepreneurs.

With an average net price of $25,581 (after grants and scholarships) and a commitment to review competitive awards, Norwich University has a financial aid program that positions us as one of the nation’s most affordable private educations.
