Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.


Keeping our Norwich students and community informed and safe.

PLEASE NOTE: As of October 21, Norwich University reports zero active cases of COVID-19 in a total of 1665 students currently in residence on the Northfield campus. The cumulative total of positive cases is six to date. As a precautionary measure during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Norwich campus is closed to the public for the foreseeable future to include all buildings, fields and tracks. Thank you for your understanding.

On March 1, 2020, the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control released a guidance to Institutions of Higher Education with students participating in exchange or study abroad programs recommending that they consider asking participants to return to the U.S. The full guidance can be found here:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/student-foreign-travel.html

I wanted to be the first to inform you that should you wish to return to the U.S. or Vermont at this time, the International Center will do all we can to support your decision to do so. We are in communication with local staff and will work together to determine the best course of action for your particular situation.

Unless your local provider has decided to cease its program operations, Norwich University will not require you to return. We reserve the right to do so at any time, for any reason. However, our practice is to do so when the State Department elevates your country’s Travel Advisory to Level 4: Do Not Travel or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention elevates your country’s Warning Level to Red:  Avoid all non-essential travel to this destination. For a complete list of Travel Advisories, visit: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices and https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories.html 

Your health and safety are important to us. Please stay in close communication with your local program provider, monitor your local news, and follow the State Department’s news feeds.

If I can help you in any way, including weighing your options for an early return, do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at This email address is being protected from spambots.
