Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

Undergraduate Admissions

The campus visit is the most important part of the college selection process.

Brochures and view books are informative, but a campus visit brings alive everything you’ve read about and helps you to determine if Norwich is the best place for you to spend the next four years of your life.

Norwich offers a comprehensive and customized visitation program for students and their families. From our day visits to our overnight program to an open house/showcases to our leadership challenge weekend, we provide you with the information you need to determine if you’re a good fit for Norwich and, more importantly, if we’re a good fit for you.

We think a campus visit is so important that we’ll award you a $1,000 scholarship if you attend an official Admissions campus visit during or after the Spring semester of your junior year in high school. For those who can’t make it to campus, we’ll award you a $500 scholarship if you attend an official Admissions virtual visit.

    FLC is a two-week, military-style, summertime adventure experience that builds understanding of small-group leadership techniques, leadership ethics, teamwork, problem-solving, and communication. Participants will encounter challenge, excitement, and fun. Activities include rappelling, paintball, first-aid, classroom instruction, a challenge course, and more. Teams are led by current Norwich University students and professional leaders to ensure expert instruction and a life-changing experience.

    What happens at FLC?

    WEEK 1

    A typical day begins at 5:30 a.m. and includes morning physical fitness followed by training sessions that focus on individual and team skills. Each participant will serve as “team leader” for one day and be evaluated on performance. Evening sessions focus on interactive classroom instruction on the methods, traits and principles of leadership, and effective communication.

    WEEK 2

    Participants confront physical challenges such as climbing and rappelling the cliffs of Deer Leap Mountain. They practice wilderness survival skills during a three-day “in the woods” overnight exercise, and then test what they’ve learned during the Bushmaster Course. Teams spend their final days competing in the Olympic Challenge Course, a drill competition, and skit night.

    Who is eligible?

    FLC is available to current high school Freshmen to rising Seniors.  Graduated high school seniors will only be allowed to attend FLC if they have been accepted and committed to attending Norwich by making the University's Freshman year enrollment deposit in advance.

    What are the application requirements?

    A complete application includes:

    1. The online registration form
    2. Health acknowledgment form
    3. Medical/Liability release waiver
    4. Copy of your health insurance card

    What is the cost?

    A session costs $1,975, which includes: uniforms, room and meals, and all activities!

    We split the cost into two payments:

    • A $275 deposit, which is due upon registering 
    • The remaining $1,700 is due three weeks before camp starts

    Are you thinking of attending Norwich? If you complete the Norwich University Future Leader Camp while still in high school, you may be eligible for a $2,000 FLC scholarship that will apply toward the cost of Norwich University tuition for each of 4 years—that’s a total award of $8,000, more than most summer jobs!
