affordability infographic-after aid and scholarships, Norwich's average net price is $25,581

We believe in making Norwich University affordable and accessible to all qualified students. 

The Norwich University experience provides leadership training, hands-on learning, and distinctive campus lifestyle options and we believe students should have an equal opportunity to benefit from that education.

Students accepted for admission to Norwich University can expect that Norwich will be their most affordable four-year private university option for residential education. 

How it works:

At the time of acceptance, all students are considered for academic scholarships. To be considered for additional aid, domestic students must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). International students must complete the CSS Profile for consideration. 

Norwich University has a financial aid program that positions us as one of the most affordable private educations in the nation. If after you receive a comprehensive aid package from Norwich you find that you owe less to another four-year residential program, Norwich University will review your award package to ensure you do not pay any more to attend Norwich than you would at the following types of institutions:

  1. Four-year accredited private college/universities. 
  2. Any four-year residential “out-of-state price” state university or Senior Military College
  3. Any in-state flagship university

Students must apply for both admission and financial aid before Dec. 15 for priority consideration. Applications after Dec. 15 may be considered on a funds-available basis.

Both first-year and transfer students are eligible for the affordability commitment.


  • Students must apply for need-based aid (FAFSA for domestic applicants; CSS Profile for international applicants)
  • Students must provide a copy of the award letter from the competing school(s) before any changes will be made to Norwich’s financial aid.
  • The price used to determine the comparable net-price after financial aid will be the grant and scholarship aid subtracted from the tuition, standard fees, room, and board. If Norwich University has a higher net price than the competing school, a scholarship will be added for the purpose of equalizing the net price to that of the competing school.
  • The grant and scholarship award amounts will remain fixed at the awarded amount for all four years at Norwich University (eight semesters).

*two-year programs, community colleges, for-profit schools, and non-residential programs will not be considered in this offer. 

**Residential programs are defined as undergraduate programs where the student is living on campus and paying room and board charges to the university.
