What percentage of your students receive financial aid?
Norwich University
About 98% of our students receive financial aid. We give out over $70 million a year to our students in the form of scholarships, grants, and awards. You can see a list of what we offer for scholarships and awards on our website. The first type of aid most students get is an academic award. After being accepted the financial aid office takes a look at the student's recalculated GPA and writes a letter that's sent with the acceptance letter saying which academic award they are receiving. This can be anywhere from $22,000 to $28,000 annually.

How would students describe the on-campus atmosphere?
Norwich University
Being an alumnus I have first-hand experience of what campus life is like. Even though there are two different lifestyles everyone gets along with each other. All students take classes, eat, play on teams, or even partake in clubs together. Norwich has a unique way of fostering relationships amongst our students that will literally last a lifetime. We do offer webinars so prospective students can speak with current students about what life is like as a student at NU. We do not have any scheduled right now, but should in the near future.

All new incoming students have an orientation schedule that helps them learn about campus, where everything is located, what the expectations are of students, and help them make friends. We provide as many tools and resources as necessary to help our students be successful.

Does your university plan to start up a women's wrestling team?
Norwich University
As of right now, we are not starting a women's wrestling team. However, we do offer 20 varsity sports and over 80 different clubs and organizations. You could start a women's wrestling club team. It only takes you, one other student, and a faculty member to start a club. We believe in our students so much that we even provide start-up funds to help you get a head start on being successful.

Do you offer scholarships based on merit of financial need?
Norwich University
We do offer scholarships and grants based on financial needs. In order to qualify you need to fill out the FAFSA application which can be sent in as of October 1st. We recommend setting an hour aside with your family to do this as it does ask for your parents' tax information. You can start filling this out now so it is ready to send in by 10/1. You can find a list of our scholarships on our website.
