Norwich University Signs Agreement with Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center on Credit Transfers

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) has signed an agreement with Norwich University at the DLIFLC facility in Monterey, Calif., with the goal of maximizing the allowable credit transfer resulting in a smooth transition for students transferring into a Norwich University College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS) online bachelor’s degree program beginning on its signed date of December 18, 2018.

As of October 25, 2018, the DLIFLC has awarded 15,000 Associate of Arts (AA) in Foreign Language Degrees to members of the active and reserve U.S. Armed Forces and civilian employees of Department of Defense (DoD) or other federal agencies. Pairing with Norwich University’s nearly 200 years of military heritage, this collaboration between leaders in U.S. military education aims to provide students with a quality learning experience while enhancing their academic and professional success.

“I look forward to working with an institution that holds educational values and academic rigor similar to Norwich University,” CGCS Vice President and Dean William Clements said. “We want the greatest success for all of our students, and this agreement provides the opportunity and a pathway for students to reach their goal of earning a bachelor’s degree.”

The DLIFLC will accept Norwich University CGCS courses applicable to their AA degree general education requirements. Norwich will accept the full DLIFLC, as well as partial credit fulfillments toward the requirements of a Norwich University CGCS bachelor’s degree program for students who have not completed the DLIFLC AA degree program.

For more information on the courses accepted from the DLIFLC general education requirements into a CGCS program, and vice versa, please call 1 (866) 684-7237.
