Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

We are excited you are considering transferring to Norwich University!

Transfer students are an important part of the Norwich University campus community, and we look forward to serving your academic and transfer-related needs.

Will my credits transfer?

Use Norwich’s list in the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) to see which of your courses were previously approved for credit at Norwich.  

  1. Select your prior college or university and the courses you took. 
  2. If we have already evaluated that course, you will see the equivalent at Norwich.
  3. If you don’t see your previous university or course(s) listed, create an account on Transferology to get a personalized transfer credit report. 

Questions? Contact your admissions counselor for more information.
