Preliminary Course Listings

We expect to begin finalizing summer course offerings in January 2020.

What is the Residential Summer Semester?

A student is considered a part of the Residential Summer Semester if they are 1) enrolled in at least 12 credit hours (with at least one course being an on-campus course) and 2) residing on campus while taking courses. 

What is the benefit of participating in the Residential Summer Semester at Norwich (instead of taking just one or two courses)?

By participating in the Residential Summer Semester, you have access to your full Norwich University financial aid and scholarship package to assist in paying for their summer courses.

How many courses can I take as a Residential Summer Semester participant?

A student participating in the Residential Summer Semester can take up to 19 credit hours without being charged a credit overage fee.

What courses will be available?

Summer courses will include general education, electives, and major-specific classes to satisfy many graduation requirements. See a listing of courses that will most likely be offered.

Where will I stay if I choose to live on campus for the summer?

Civilian and Corps students will live together in one of the campus dorms. Single-room occupancy will be available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis for an additional fee.

Where will I eat if I choose to live on campus for the summer?

The fee for summer housing includes a meal plan for students to use at the Wise Campus Center dining hall and other eateries on campus as available.

Will there be activities on campus throughout the summer?

Yes! Last summer we hosted a movie night on the WCC green, a hike up Camel’s Hump, and a visit to the drive-in movie theater in Bethel. Stay tuned for a schedule of Summer 2020 events.

Can I bring my car and park on campus?

Yes! Your campus parking permit is good 365 days from the date of purchase, so there is no additional fee to park on campus throughout the summer. If you don’t already have a parking permit, you can purchase one at a discounted (prorated) rate through the Office of Public Safety.

If I don’t have a personal vehicle are there other transportation options on campus?

Yes! The Stagecoach and Vermont Transit have shuttle services throughout central Vermont. Additionally, for school-sponsored, off-campus events, transportation will be provided at no additional cost to the student.

Will I have access to student support services throughout the summer?

Absolutely. Whether on campus or online, students will have access to the Writing Center and a math tutor service throughout the course of the summer sessions. The Counseling and Wellness Center will be open and has an on-call service available, similar to during the fall and spring semesters. Kreitzburg Library will have hours similar to the fall and spring semesters.
