The Academic Catalog is the definitive source for graduation requirements, outlining the courses and programs students will need to complete to earn their degrees. The catalog also explains the current year’s academic policies.

Norwich University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide enrollment and degree verification for current and prior enrolled students. Service through the National Student Clearinghouse is available 24/7. However, incomplete data requires Norwich to investigate the submission and additional time is required. The Norwich University National Student Clearinghouse School ID number is 003692-00.


Current Students

Current students can generate new enrollment verification letters through the student self service section of the National Student Clearinghouse website. This can be accessed through Banner Web.

  • Once you have logged in to Banner Web, go to the “Student Services” tab and click on “Transcript Request/Enrollment Certificate“, then click “Submit“.
  • This will take you to the National Student Clearinghouse Student Self Service page.
  • Once there, you should click “Obtain an enrollment certificate” to generate a new enrollment certificate immediately as a PDF.


3rd Party Requests or Former Students

A 3rd party, or prior student, can verify student attendance or degree verification so long as the student has authorized permission to release what is termed directory information. To complete the query fields, the Norwich student will need to provide information pertaining directly to their enrollment or degree status. The National Student Clearinghouse can be contacted by clicking the verify now box.

New and current students wishing to authorize the release of their records to third parties must complete the web-based FERPA form, accessible by logging into the My.Norwich portal and locating the Student Academic Profile section in the Web Services menu.

The Registrar’s Office staff provides accessible, attentive customer service to our many constituents, ensuring the accuracy, integrity and delivery of degrees and coursework. The Registrar’s Office is an integral part in university operations; staff work closely with nearly all offices and departments on campus.

Readmission Process

A student who has not attended classes for one or more semesters must reapply to the University. Approval is requested from Commandant or Dean of Students (housing and discipline), the Bursar, and Financial Aid -Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid. A student is encouraged to discuss their anticipated return with an advisor and/or department chair prior to completing the form. The application must be completed ten business days prior to the start of the semester.

A student who has been suspended must also submit a letter addressing the plan for success, and also be required to obtain letters of support from the Academic Achievement Center, the advisor and the primary major department chair. The Academic Achievement Center will serve as the resource for guidance when the advisor or chair is unknown.

Once the student is readmitted, curriculum changes may be submitted with the assistance of the advisor. A student not meeting program requirements such as Nursing will be changed to Undeclared until a new curriculum is selected.

Chose one of the two readmission options based upon the student’s status. The online form requires account set up and cannot be a Norwich email address.
