Norwich University Partners with Enlisted Association of the National Guard to Support Veterans Education Project
NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University officials announced a new partnership with the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States (EANGUS) to support educational pathways for Servicemembers to complete their college degree. The model of online bachelor’s degree programs at Norwich University through its College of Graduate and Continuing Studies has been heralded as a model for its evaluation of military training to determine university credit equivalency.
“Norwich University has been educating citizen soldiers for 200 years and we’re proud to continue that legacy with our new partnership with EANGUS,” said Norwich University President Richard W. Schneider.
The Norwich model, beginning with the bachelor’s degree completion program in Strategic Studies and Defense Analysis, works closely with military training organizations to carefully evaluate training and military occupational specialties (MOS). This process maximizes the ability for transfer credit and reduces the total time and cost for Servicemembers to complete their degree program by allowing students to receive college credit for course requirements when prior military service training meet degree requirements.
“This partnership with Norwich University is important to the Veterans Education Project because Norwich stands as a model for others to follow in treating Student Veterans well,” said Daniel Elkins, Director of the Veterans Education Project at EANGUS. “Norwich programs are academically rigorous, relevant to the real world, and the experience benefits Veterans.”
The mission of the Veterans Education Project is to address the current issues facing all Student Veterans and create better educational opportunities. As a part of EANGUS, the Veterans Education Project works to protect the educational benefits of Servicemembers and their families. By partnering with the Veterans Education Project, Norwich University demonstrates its support for the shared mission of making higher education accessible to veterans.
