Norwich University requires an ALEKS Placement, Preparation, and Learning (ALEKS PPL) Assessment to determine readiness for mathematics courses. ALEKS PPL is a web-based program that uses artificial intelligence to map a student’s strengths and weaknesses. The Placement Assessment is up to 30 questions and generally takes 60-90 minutes to complete. After the Placement Assessment, an individualized Prep and Learning Module is available for students to refresh their knowledge on forgotten topics. Students then have the opportunity to reassess and improve their placement.
Students enrolling in the fall semester should complete the assessment by June 1 at the latest, so that the registration team and your advisor you will be eligible for before you arrive on campus. Students enrolling in the spring semester should complete the assessment by November 15.

Before reviewing the list below we'd like to suggest a few general rules of thumb when considering what to bring.
1. Remember everything you bring in will have to be brought back out at the end of the year. Taking a minimalist perspective might help, bring only what you need; Consider how many trips it will take to unpack and pack the car, save your back from strain; Know that you will most likely buy more things (Norwich gear, Hiking stick you made, Vermont knicknacks, etc); The amount of things you will have at the end of the year will be more than you brought in for some reason. Ask yourself “Do I really need this…?” for each item.
2. You will need winter gear, but not right away. Pack your winter gear but have a family member ship it to you in October. Save the box so you can ship them back at the end of April.
3. Start conversing with your roommate about what items you may share (fridge, microwave, TV), also really consider whether you really need those things since there are Microwaves on each floor, and a TV in each Lounge. Do you need that gaming system if your focus is on academics, and you already have a laptop?
