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.

Types of Visits

  • Day Visit

    Nothing brings Norwich University to life better than spending time on campus. Here’s your chance to meet campus officials, tour campus, and eat in the dining hall. Contingent on availability, additional appointments with coaches, faculty, student life, and others will be scheduled around these times.

    Schedule a Visit

    To secure a spot, please register two weeks in advance. For information call 1 (802) 485-2001

  • Open House

    Open houses are a crash course in everything Norwich has to offer.

    The day begins with the chance to meet faculty, staff, coaches, cadets, civilian students, financial planning counselors, ROTC instructors, and more. Participants will take a tour of campus, eat in the Wise Campus Center, and receive a briefing on the admissions and financial aid processes.

  • NU on the Road

    If you can’t make it to campus for a personal visit, let us come to you. Every year, Norwich sends representatives across the country to meet prospective students in person. We provide different categories of events described below.

    Regional events are presentations held in different parts of the country where members of the admissions team will be present to answer your questions about admissions, financial aid, academics, athletics, student activities, and our civilian and Corps of Cadets lifestyles. You will also receive ROTC scholarship application tips from the Birthplace of ROTC.

    Check the map to see what events are taking place in your area.

  • NU Experience

    An overnight visit opportunity for high school seniors.

    What is the difference?

    We are often asked what the difference is between an Open House event and the NU Experience. The main difference is that the NU Experience takes place during the week (Wednesday/Thursday), while an Open House takes place on a weekend (Friday/Saturday). While both offer overnight opportunities, the NU Experience provides an additional opportunity to spend the night on campus and experience Norwich while the university is active and classes are in session. Families are welcome to participate in the NU Experience events on Thursday, which includes a complimentary breakfast. The overnight portion is offered to students only.

    The NU Experience is available to high school seniors only. All events are provided in order to offer multiple opportunities for your family to visit campus on a date that is most convenient for your schedule.

    FLC is a challenging, meaningful adventure camp 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.

    During the first week, 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.

    During the second week, 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.

    On the day before departure, participants enjoy a day of swimming, canoeing, and kayaking at Lake Elmore and are welcome to relax, play horseshoes or volleyball, or hike up Mount Elmore.

    Future Leader Camp is conducted at Norwich University, located on 1,200 acres in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Participants reside in a college dorm and sleep two to three to a room. Meals are served in the Wise Campus Center. On training days when we are away from the main campus, participants are issued Meals-Ready-to-Eat (MREs).

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

    Scholarships:

    • Vermont residents are eligible for a $500 scholarship toward the cost of FLC.

    • Vermont National Guard members or dependents who are juniors in high school with a 3.0 GPA or higher may be eligible for a scholarship that would cover the full cost of FLC.
    • Members of Civil Air Patrol may be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship toward the cost of FLC.
    • Students who attend a Norwich University Future Leader Camp in the summer as high school sophomores or juniors may be eligible for a $2,000 Future Leader Camp (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!
