Effective immediately, we will conclude Phase 1 of campus quarantine. Residential students will transition to Phase 2 of campus quarantine and will be permitted to request leave from campus.
During Phase 2, it is vital that students continue to fully comply with the Student Behavioral Contract and the Daily Health Screening, adhere to the Mask Use Policy, maintain physical distancing, follow hand hygiene guidelines, and adhere strictly to the current “student household” restrictions. While we are all experiencing COVID-19 fatigue and frustration, compliance with these guidelines is critical to keeping our community healthy and safe.

The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) was signed into federal law on December 27, 2020. The Act included the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) II to support college students whose education has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with financial grants. Norwich University received funding under this program for the specific purpose of providing financial aid grants to students.
Per Department of Education (DOE) guidance, the HEERF funds must be prioritized for students with exceptional need. Students may use the grant for a component of their cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to the coronavirus such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or childcare. If a student chooses, the grant may be used to satisfy his or her account’s outstanding balance.
