Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

Norwich University participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. Federal loans include Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans and Federal Direct PLUS Loans.

Please review your Norwich Financial Aid award letter for your qualification amounts. For more information visit studentaid.ed.gov.


Returning Students:

If you completed a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling previously, you will not need to do so again. Students who wish to receive Federal aid are required to complete the FAFSA each year they are enrolled at the University. The FAFSA is available at https://fafsa.ed.gov starting October 1 for the next academic year. Students will also be required to accept their aid on NetPartner.
