Eligibility & Application Process

Entering First Year Students

Entering first year students with a 3.5 secondary school GPA may be invited to apply.

If you are selected, you will receive a personal invitation that will include full information on the application process. Typically, you would be asked to submit an Honors Program Application packet that consists of:

  • two letters of recommendation from faculty familiar with the student’s academic profile
  • a resume outlining student’s academic achievements, work experience and service credentials
  • a response essay to writing prompts

The credentials of an applicant will be considered by the Norwich University Honors Council and an announcement of acceptance will be made in mid-April.

Existing NU Student Applicants

Students completing their first or second semester at NU with a 3.2 GPA and showing an outstanding academic aptitude may be invited to apply.

If you are selected, you will receive an invitation to submit the Honors Program Application Packet that consists of:

  • two letters of recommendation from Norwich University faculty from two different disciplines
  • a resume outlining student’s academic achievements, work experience and service credentials
  • a response essay to writing prompts

It is strongly encouraged that NU student applicants work with their academic advisors in preparation of an application packet to ensure the success of the process.
