Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
Norwich has an excellent reputation with the Armed Forces and with many businesses across the country, many of my friends from school found summer employment easily from Norwich alumni or from people who know Norwich's reputation. We're looked at with greater respect for the most part than more recognizable schools like Westpoint.
Jesse from Clinton, ME
It depends what your major is and how well your ties are to Alumni. Alumni LOVE the University and poor money into it and are main sources of jobs in internships.

Norwich estimated that I would receive a state grant of about $6,000. I only received $750. Norwich covered the difference and I did not have to take out another loan or pay out of pocket. There are a lot of work study and non work study jobs available to help students. I currently work sporting events on campus. Its fun, and if your a Rook it gets you out of the barracks.
Sarah from Jericho, VT
The cost may be a bit high but in the end so far I have seen has paid off. Many students that graduate I've seen have gone on and become great in their field or profession. Also in most of New England people would respect you if you caught with anything with a Norwich emblem or the class ring. Even around the country many people have either graduated from or attended Norwich in the past years. For me it is amazing to see so many people in the states as well as the world to have the Norwich spirit. Here you are not alone at all.
Jaime from Jacksonville, FL
It is somewhat on the expensive side, but I will be commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant into the United States Marine Corps upon graduating. This has been my goal for many years, and I am now getting my career on track.
Kaitlin from Canton, OH
NU is an expensive school but if the opportunity for scholarship monies come your way, it lessens the bite. When it comes to your education, the quality you get is incredible and world recognized. NU boasts career placement levels above all other New England schools at the time of graduation which is very important. Most schools that claim similar success rates, are based on placement within a year of graduation and not prior to. This is a huge difference because after all, isn't that the root reason to go to college???!!!!???
Nicholas from Concord, NH
you'll get valuable leadership experience here at norwich that you won't get at any other civilian university. additionally, having small class sizes allows you one-on-one time with your professors, which is infinitely worth the tuition in and of itself.
joseph from piscataway, nj
Norwich University is surprisingly a normal price for an out of state college. Through my eyes being the best military college it is worth every penny. Especially considering if you apply before Nov. 15 you will get a good sum of money in institutional scholarships. Plus if you are seeking a commission like me, they (your captain in the ROTC), will fight for a full 3 to 3.5 year scholarship for you so long as you do well academically and act like you want to be there.
Jared from Morgantown, WV
It's just below $50,000 to attend Norwich, but the alumni are great when it comes to helping out graduates find jobs!
